NEWPORT’S CLEAN CITY PROGRAM ANNOUNCES
EARTH DAY CLEANUP EVENTS
Newport Mayor Harry F. Winthrop and the Newport Public Services Department’s Clean City Program would like to invite Newport area residents to volunteer for one of the 12 litter cleanup events happening for Newport’s 2013 Earth Day celebration, which is also part of Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup.
The Clean City Program will be providing gloves, bags and a thank you gift for volunteers. City staff will also pick up the bags of litter for the Earth Day cleanups in Newport. Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation is waiving all disposal fees associated with litter collected during Earth Day cleanups and Waste Management Newport will also assist in the pickup of the litter.
“We are fortunate that Newport has such dedicated volunteers,” said Mayor Harry F. Winthrop. “The City of Newport is appreciative of any assistance you can provide in keeping our city clean."
Earth Day is Monday, April 22. A majority of the City of Newport’s Earth Day events will take place on Saturday, April 13 and, with such, invites all residents to participate in any of the scheduled cleanups when they might be available to do so. All April 13 cleanups have a rain date of April 20. Interested volunteers may contact the event coordinator directly or the Clean City Program at 845-5613 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Clean City Program is also available to provide assistance to those individuals who may want to start their own neighborhood cleanup as part of Earth Day activities.
