Hamden Earth Day Trail Cleanup & Composter Unit Pickup

Trail Cleanup Adjacent to the Middle School:

On April 24th, at the middle school, Hamden will have a cleanup of the adjacent trails and bike path near Shepard Brook.  Meet at 11:00am at the rear middle school parking lot next to the tennis courts.  Volunteers will be bagging up trash and Public Works will remove them for disposal.  This is a good outside Earth Day activity where we can easily social distance while making a positive impact on our local environments and the community as a whole.  Call the Recycling Coordinator to sign up if you want to participate and to get detailed instructions. 

You must be on the list ahead of time to volunteerCall the Recycling Coordinator, Joe DeRisi, at 203-287-7021, or e-mail at jderisi@hamden.com
