Green UP Day  - May 7th



Always the first Saturday in May, this year Saturday May 7 marks 52 years of proudly continuing Vermont’s unique Green Up Day tradition. 

Volunteers statewide will come together in their communities to tackle trash and litter along roadsides, in public spaces, natural landscapes and waterways. Vermont was the first state in the nation to designate one special day for cleaning the entire state.

Green Up Day 2022 is managed by the City of South Burlington with volunteer support from the South Burlington Rotary Club.  Here’s how you can participate;

Our set up will look a little different than in past years.   We are distributing Green Up bags at the Welcome Center desk at City Hall ,180 Market Street. You can pick them up anytime between 8:00 – 4:30 PM Monday – Friday. We ask that you take a max of 4 bags per household. Please only take what you will fill . Please return unused bags at the time of trash drop-off. - The Green up Bags are purchased by donations.  

Pick up Bags – 180 Market Street, South Burlington VT - Welcome Center - Monday - Friday, Now through May 6th

THERE IS NO ROADSIDE PICKUP.  Abandoned roadside tires will be accepted.  This year, participants will determine their own locations to collect trash. When dropping off the bags, we would like to keep track of what road you picked up on and how many bags you filled.
