Project Clean Sweep coming to Marlborough

March 6, 2018 by  

The city of Marlborough, Massachusetts recently announced that it will be hosting its annual citywide cleaning project later next month to help clear up some of the trash across a number of the most popular areas in the city.

On the day, the city asks those who wish to volunteer for Project Clean Sweep to meet at the Department of Public Works municipal garage on 135 Neil Street. Volunteers will be given assignments, the necessary materials to collect litter, and a free T-shirt with a graphic design of the words ‘Project Clean Sweep’ emblazoned on them. Last year alone, the city managed to clear over 9,000lb of trash – an amount it hopes to surpass this year.

The mayor of Marlborough, Arthur Vigeant, spoke fondly of the upcoming event. He said:

“Project Clean Sweep is a wonderful way to enjoy the fresh air, get some exercise, and help make our neighborhoods look their best. This is where we work, live, and play and it’s important to take pride in how our city looks. The more volunteers we have, the better our city will look.”

The event will be taking place on April 28 at 9:00 am. Those who are unable to volunteer on that date can still participate in the event by clearing their lawns and sidewalks and pushing the debris into the roadside gutter and also by picking up any trash that may be in their neighborhood.
