Spring is here and it’s time to get out from under all the trash that has accumulated along our roadways.
The Boothbay Craft Brewery and Boothbay Region Water District are sponsoring a Community Clean Up Day on April 28, from 9 am to 1 pm. It’s a morning that will focus on getting out and picking up trash and then at noon, we will break to enjoy a cookout, Boothbay Craft Brewery’s finest locally brewed hometown beer, 633 pale ale and good company.
The event will kick off at the Brewery at 301 Adams Pond Road at 9 a.m. Of course our focus is to clean up in and around our precious watersheds of Adams Pond and Knickerbocker Lakes. But we will extend as far and as wide as the number of participants allow. Maps will be provided to pickers to organize the event. Anyone who wants to clean up any other stretch of the road is welcome to do so! Literally, if you want to walk your own neighborhood and just clean up there that would be awesome, just bring in your new found bounty and we will take it from there!
Interested, but don’t want to show up at 9? Well, then just hit the road! When you’re done, bring your filled trash bags to the Brewery and exchange it for food and drink.
We are asking everyone who participates to wear brightly colored clothing and to not remove trash along Route 27 because of high speed traffic.
We hope you will join us in sprucing things up for the season and help us protect and keep our region looking sharp!
