Let’s participate with our annual roadside cleanup this weekend. We can contribute to our lake community, enhance the environment, set a good example for our children and grandchildren, and carry out another part of our Healthy Lake Boon Initiative. Please help pick up trash along our roads to keep the neighborhood looking nice and prevent anything from blowing or washing into the lake or clogging storm drains. You can put the accumulation with your normal trash pickup. Participants should wear gloves, long pants and long sleeves to help avoid poison ivy and bright clothes or a reflective vest for safety.
Those in Stow can also register as part of the town-wide cleanup by signing up online or at the Lower Common (Shaw’s plaza) on Saturday morning 8 a.m. to noon. The Stow Cleanup Group will have yellow garbage bags, gloves and reflective vests available there also. Bags can be put in your own trash can or left by the side of the road in Stow. The Stow Town Highway Department will pick up bags on Monday.
