CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
Community Illegal Dumpsite Cleanup
The Pennsylvania Environmental Council, in partnership with Top Notch Tree Care, New Milford Hardware and Green Gables Restaurant, and in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup, will conduct a Community Illegal Dumpsite Cleanup in New Milford Borough.
This event will focus on cleaning up illegally dumped tires. The illegally dumped tires are located along Route 11 in the wetlands across from the New Milford Hardware store. This is an illegal dumpsite cleanup within a waterway. Volunteers are asked to dress appropriately. Our partners will be on site to assist in this cleanup. Food and drinks will be provided.
On the day of the cleanup, volunteers will gather for registration and instructions. After registration, volunteers will be provided with work gloves and safety vest. When supplies are distributed, and instructions have been given, volunteers will begin the cleanup.
Families, individuals, scouting groups, 4H groups, environmental clubs, businesses, college and university clubs, and high school students are invited to be part of this effort. (Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or have a parent/guardian sign a registration/insurance form prior to the cleanup and bring it with them. Anyone over 18 can sign the insurance form the day of the event.)
