SHREWSBURY – As rain fell, trash was picked up. 

On April 20, dozens of dedicated community members volunteered their morning to pick up debris throughout town. Town Clean-Up Day –  run by Keep Shrewsbury Beautiful and sponsored by Patrick Motor Group and Shrewsbury Federal Credit Union – aimed to help clean the town, one piece of litter at a time. 

“We have a huge commitment to keeping everything clean. It just makes the town look better – so when you drive into the town you’re not driving into a mess. It’s just important for all of us on the park side of things,” Parks and Cemetery Division Manager Kevin Esposito said.

Volunteers stopped by Town Hall for trash bags, gloves and trash-grabbers. Armed with the proper equipment, they ventured into almost every area of town to collect debris. Some Boy Scout, Cub Scout and Girl Scout troops were involved in the clean-up, while most volunteers were ordinary people determined to make a difference in their neighborhood. 

“We just want to keep everything clean… A lot of the people are doing their own neighborhoods, which is nice because sometimes the parks are actually cleaner than the neighborhoods. It just really shows that people want to keep the parks clean as well as their own neighborhoods,” said Esposito.
