Spring and Fall cleanups began in 1986 and have been visibly successful throughout the years. Nevertheless, we persist in passing on the crucial importance in treating Town Properties as if they were our very own front yards.
Lights and Baskets
During the dreary winter months, brightness and festivity can restore charm and cheer to even the shortest of days. We partner with local businesses to decorate Central Greenwich and beyond with Lights! on trees and hanging baskets on lampposts made with strictly volunteer labor.
Our partners, Greenwich Youth Conservation Program and Greenwich Recycling Advisory Board work with us to instill the values of smart and sound recycling practices on the next generation of Greenwich citizens. We are dedicated to educating our children about sustaining a healthy environment.
Greenwich Green & Clean helps coordinate residents, merchants, landlords, businesses and the Town to install reusable lights during the holiday season. The money raised will be used to light trees in commercial centers of Greenwich. If your generous donations meet our goals, we will be able to keep even more side streets festively lit.
On May 5th, 2018 the Greenwich Green & Clean in coordination with the Greenwich Fire Department hosted a town-wide effort to clean up areas affected by litter and the changing seasons. Thanks to everyone who came out to volunteer and if you would like to report a dirty site that will need attention in the fall, send us an email! Click below to find out more.
Please help our friends and partners at the G.R.A.B. as they advocate for recycling as an alternative to just finding efficiencies in trash removal in Greenwich.
The G.R.A.B. mission:
- Develop educational materials and programs for the community on the benefits of recycling.
- Encourage and implement recycling initiatives leading to sound waste management.
- Support recycling education in public and independent schools in the area.
- Develop recycling programs which support Town regulations.
Try to “weed” these invaders out of your garden! You do not want invasive vines, plants, and trees on your property.
An invasive plant has the ability to thrive and spread aggressively outside its native range. A naturally aggressive plant may be especially invasive when it is introduced to a new habitat.
