What to Gather
- First grab a friend!
- Gloves are a must and long pants and sleeves are preferable. Bright colors are also helpful if you plan to clean up near a road.
- Blue bags are available at the Transfer Station. You can pick them up anytime leading up to and all throughout Clean Up Week.
What to Do
- Choose your area and go enjoy the fresh air. Be safe and smart. Stay aware near roadways and never pick up any sharp, potentially dangerous items.
- Tie your blue bags off when they are full, and leave them right on the side of the road.
- Call Public Works at 432-6144 to let them know where your bags are. There are lots of hard working folks in the Public Works department who help make this week possible.
- Spread the word! Discuss your experience with friends and family. We can all make small dents to make a big impact.
Go Green will have a kick off event on October 7th a 9am at The Coffee Factory. We will be handing out blue bags and taking signups. This is a great event if you would like to learn more about Derry’s clean up efforts or find out what area you can cover to help make the biggest impact.
