2014 Clean Sweep Awards

"Volunteer of the Year" awards (back) and Certificates of Appreciation
Every year we award hundreds of Certificates of Appreciation and custom iron-on patches to people who have helped out with Clean Sweep. Most of these are requested for Scouts. We then choose a "Volunteer of the Year" for three different categories: Business, Civic Group, and Individual. We exclude Adopt-a-Street participants since they already have a street sign with their name on it.

Individual Category - George Waters
George Waters won the Volunteer of the Year award for the Individual Category due to his year-round efforts to remove litter from the Housatonic River by kayak and canoe.

Civic Group - Boy Scout Troop 28
And Boy Scout Troop 28 did it again this year by holding not just one big cleanup, but four. Four!

Business - Tighe & Bond
Tighe & Bond does a big cleanup every year, but this time they partnered with the Shelton Land Conservation Trust to clean up some newly donated property off of Providence Drive along the headwaters of Ivy Brook.
