Spring Cleaning: Wilton to Hold Town-Wide Cleanup–Volunteers Needed
The Wilton Conservation Commission is looking for volunteers to pitch in for the 2019 Town-Wide Cleanup Day on Saturday, May 4 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m., starting at the Town Green. Every year hard working volunteers of all ages join together to pick up litter along Wilton’s roadways and the banks of the Norwalk River.
“Town-wide clean up is wonderful way for the community to work together to improve our town. Whether you are volunteering as an individual, family or part of a group, every set of hands matters and I hope you will join us,” said First Selectwoman Lynne Vanderslice.
Work gloves, garbage bags and dumpsters will be provided by the Wilton Conservation Commission and available at the gazebo on the Town Green starting at 9 a.m.. This year’s event has several generous donors who have provided raffle prizes for some lucky participants.
Wilton Hardware and Wilton Kiwanis have both donated to the third annual Townwide Cleanup Day raffle. Prizes will include gift certificates to local businesses–Wilton Deli, Wilton Hardware, Scoops, Orem’s Diner, and the movies. To be eligible to enter the raffle volunteers must collect a full garbage bag of litter and bring it the town green for disposal. The raffle will be drawn promptly at noon on May 4, and participants must be present to win. Additionally, Pinocchio Pizza will provide each volunteer with a coupon for one free slice of cheese pizza for helping out.
