Over in Dartmouth, a dedicated group of volunteers is once again gearing up for their annual town-wide cleanup event. It's called "Green Up Day 2024", spearheaded by Ian McGonnigal and his team, set to take place between Saturday, April 20, and Sunday, April 28. It's not just a one-time event but a year-round commitment to encouraging a cleaner and greener environment for all.

The goal behind Dartmouth Green Up is simple yet profound: a clean environment is a shared responsibility. Each year, residents join forces with the 'Green Up' team to tackle litter and debris.

Participants are encouraged to self-select an area of town that holds personal significance to them, whether it's a neighborhood park, a bustling street corner, or a scenic trail. Armed with purple trash bags provided free of charge by the Department of Public Works (DPW), volunteers set out to make a real difference in their surroundings.

Anyone interested can swing by the DPW office located at 759 Russells Mills Road to pick up their supplies. Once these bags are full with collected litter, participants can drop them off at any of the six designated locations conveniently scattered across town. These collection points include:

Allen Street & Tucker Rd
Faunce Corner Rd & Old Fall River Road
Dartmouth High School
Horseneck Rd/Landing
Slocum Road & Russells Mills Rd (DYAA)
Apponagansett Park

As Dartmouth Green Up continues to grow and evolve, its ripple effects extend far beyond the boundaries of the town. This program is not merely about picking up trash; it's about showing care and respect for our shared environment. So mark your calendars, grab your purple trash bags, and join McGonnigal and the dedicated volunteers of Dartmouth Green Up as they embark on another journey to make Dartmouth cleaner, greener, and more vibrant than ever before.
