2022 Town Wide Clean Up Event
The Danvers DPW in partnership with the Rail Trail Committee hosted its very first Spring Town Wide Clean Up event this year on, Saturday, April 23rd.
Over 150 volunteers gathered around town to participate in the Town of Danvers’s first Town Wide Clean Up Event! Groups and individuals spread out around town to clean up litter in areas including the Rail Trail, public schools, public parks, athletic fields, Pope’s Landing, Endicott Park, the Meadows, the Danvers Food Pantry, Nichols Street, Purchase Street, Brad Purcell Skate Park, and Proctor Farm.
In total, volunteers cleaned up 26 sites and collected a total of over 2,000 pounds of litter!!
With the team effort and motivation from all event participants, Danvers’ Town Wide Clean Up event turned out to be a great success!
A big shout-out goes out to all of our volunteers, and to our Trash Coordinator, Frank Cobuzzi for helping to collect all the bags at the end of the clean up! Without them, this event would not have been able to happen.
