2019 CLEAN YOUR MILE CAMPAIGN
the week of APRIL 22-April 28

New Canaan’s Clean Your Mile Campaign is just around the corner, scheduled this year for the week of April 22-28. As the daffodils bloom and the trees and shrubs leaf out, the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce and Planet New Canaan are joining forces with the Town of New Canaan Inland Wetlands and Public Works Departments to organize New Canaan’s 2019 spring cleaning effort.

Once again Clean Your Mile sponsors are urging village businesses, churches, non-profits, students, athletes, community service groups and individual citizens to participate in this important community effort. It is our goal to tackle all our public spaces downtown, our town parks, our school properties and our residential neighborhoods. We really need your help!

As a school official, church leader, business owner or community group leader, your support and willingness to organize volunteers will make a significant difference in the success of this spring cleanup to beautify our town and environment. We welcome volunteers to organize any day in the Clean Your Mile week for their particular effort. We believe with sufficient manpower, each group will need to commit only 1-2 hours to this effort.

Garbage bags are available to volunteers at the Public Works Department (1st floor) and Inland Wetland office (lower level) at Town Hall. Dumpsters will be located at the train station commuter lot on Friday-Sunday.

We are currently organizing the area assignments. We have numerous streets, schools, parks, parking areas and public spaces to cover and would greatly appreciate everyone’s help. Please email: lola.sweeney@newcanaanct.gov or call (203)594-3089 with the name of your group, contact email address and what area you are interested in cleaning or to request an assignment
