Green Up Day
Green Up Day, always the first Saturday in May, was launched in 1970 by Governor Deane Davis. Since 1979, the non-profit organization Green Up Vermont proudly carries on the tradition of Green Up Day. It is an annual statewide event, when over 22,000 volunteers come together to remove litter from Vermont’s roadsides and public spaces.
Volunteers can stop by Town Hall on Saturday (or earlier) to sign up for parts of Monkton roadways and get green bags and gloves. Town Hall will be open from 8am to Noon on Saturday. Please drop off bags at the Town Garage or leave them by the side of the road for pickup by neighbors and/or the Road Crew.
