GRAFTON – In celebration of Earth Day, teams of volunteers are being organized to clean up the trash along the streets, in neighborhoods, on the school playgrounds and in parks throughout Grafton.

Residents are invited to take part in this townwide effort, which is sponsored by the Grafton Garden Club.

Contact chairperson Helen Blazis at [email protected] and let her know which area of town you would like to clean up. Then go to the Grafton Department of Public Works, 64 Old Westborough Road, to pick up the yellow bags you use and a sheet of instructions. These will be available at the DPW April 15-19.

Trash may be picked up anytime during the week of April 15-20. Then contact the DPW at 508-839-8525 and let it know where you have left your filled bags.

Everyone who helps with Grafton cleanup day is invited to stop by the Common on Saturday, April 20, from 9 a.m. to noon. You can get bags, gloves and instructions, and there will be free coffee and doughnuts provided by Grafton UniBank. Bottled water will be provided by Savers Bank.

Each volunteer will receive a coupon redeemable for a pizza or sandwich at Pepperoni Express and a coupon for Swirls & Scoops where you get a soft serve, child-size cone. Both coupons may be redeemed only on April 20.

The Grafton DPW will provide free red oak and white dogwood saplings for Grafton residents to plant. The trees are available at the Common on April 20 from 9 a.m. until noon.
