Clean Up Grand Island - September 18, 2021
Additional Large Scale Effort to Clean Up Grand Island Planned for September 18th:
On Saturday, September 18th, from 9am until 12pm, The Town of Grand Island and The Grand Island Chamber of Commerce are partnering with civic groups, local agencies, and environmentally-minded residents to participate in an additional Clean UP Grand Island. With such a significant response during our spring event and additional requests for another organized effort, the Island will be again cleaning up together.
During this time, residents are encouraged to clean their homes and yards and dispose of excess trash, passenger car tires, and any items that could hold water and become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Please keep in mind this is also the day of the Town of Grand Island E-Waste Drive sponsored by Casella, taking place in the Town Hall Parking Lot.
Volunteers will be needed for some additional clean-up areas that have been identified. A map will be posted online showing the areas and the committee requests that you contact a member listed on the flier if volunteering to clean in a certain area.
Underage volunteers must be accompanied by an adult.
Participants are encouraged to wear proper attire (gloves, work boots), sunscreen, insect repellent and stay hydrated. Additionally, groups wishing to work along heavily trafficked roads should speak with Highway Superintendent Crawford to be aware of regulations and safety practices required.
If you have any questions, please contact Dick Crawford, Highway Superintendent, at 716-773-9632, Jennifer Baney, Town Councilwoman, at 716-622-9006 or Eric Fiebelkorn at 716-319-7292.
