Our First Annual Fall Cleanup

The Anti-Litter Committee announces it's first annual fall clean-up to be held at Riverview Park on Saturday, September 30 from 8:30 - 10:30 am. Meet at the playground on the north end of the park, located near the intersection of CT 110 (Howe Ave) and Wheeler Street. (See Google map for driving directions). We will have garbage bags.

Riverview Park. The Bluff Walk is the black dashed line. 

This cleanup is open to all, no registration required. While the Parks Department does pick up the manicured areas you can see from Howe Avenue, there is a wooded slope going down to the river with a walking path called "The Bluff Walk" that was built over 100 years ago. Litter tends to blow in from Rt 110 down the hill and collect along the slope. The trail is about half a mile long.

Shelton's First Park and oldest walking path
We have a few extra 2017 Clean Sweep Patches leftover and these will be given away to participants first come first serve. Hope to see you there.
