Residents are asked to participate in "Rid Litter Day" on Earth Day—Saturday, April 22. Beginning at 10 am, residents interested in helping pick up roadside litter may stop by the Library. Library staff along with volunteer Kathy Barkin will provide trash bags and a list of roads in need of attention.
Rid Litter participants will be asked to estimate where they will expect to finish and leave their trash bags. Trash bags left roadside will be collected the following week by the Department of Public Works’ staff. Please call 203-389-3435 with event inquiries.
With Earth Day approaching, the Regional Water Authority (RWA) began promoting wise water use. Rain barrels are an efficient and environmentally friendly way to store rain water for later use by collecting runoff from a roof or downspout. The barrels provide a free, renewable water source for filling watering cans, feeding a drip irrigation system, and other outdoor chores such as gardening, cleaning muddy tools or washing a car. Use this link to be added to the RWA Wait List to purchase rain barrels. Due to popular demand, rain barrels are currently out of stock.
