WHAT TO EXPXECT:
At the pavilion, you will be assigned to a team of 4-5 people and assigned to a section of the river to be cleaned. We clean the river from Exit 17 to the Connecticut River. Each team will need an assigned leader, who will be given a map of the pertinent section.
There are 12 sections, each approximately a half mile long. Some teams will clean up two adjoining sections.
At the pavilion, you’ll be given garbage bags. Please try to keep metal and ordinary trash separate in different bags. Make sure you get bags.
Bring the collected trash to the exit point of your section and call the phone number you were given at the CCBA for pick up by truck.
At the CCBA parking lot, there will be a dumpster for trash, and one for metal (indicated on the outside)
Tires need to be deposited in the city dump truck designed for tires at the CCBA parking lot.
