Marion's town-wide spring cleanup is April 28

Apr 10, 2018

The Marion Cub Scouts Pack 32 and Marion Boy Scouts Troop 32 are joining forces with Gifts to Give, the Marion Recreation Department, Tabor Academy and Marion Department of Public Works for an annual town-wide spring cleaning.

The cleanup will begin at Washburn Park on Saturday April 28, from 8:30-11 a.m. (The rain date is April 29, at the same time.)

Participants will be given trash bags, recycling bags, gloves and be provided with a yellow vest. Assignments will be handed out and participants will clear the trash and other debris left from winter and the four nor'easters that hit the area.

In addition to cleaning up the streets, closet cleaning is also a possibility. Gifts to Give, an Acushnet-based charity, will have a truck at Washburn Park from 8:30-11 a.m. to collect new and gently used children’s items.

Litter collected will be returned to Washburn Park to create a "trash mountain," a visual testament to the amount of litter left on town roadways and to the efforts of community members.
