Sherborn Picks Up April 2022!

Friday, April 1, 20228:30 amSunday, May 1, 20226:30 pm

The Town of Sherborn's Select Board and its Department of Public Works is supporting an ongoing community effort to pick up litter in Sherborn during the month of April 2022 with the #SherbornPicksUp initiative and with it, hopes to encourage positive change both locally and as part of the global community.

A public art installation of Litter Letters spelling out WHY in the center of town will again be a very prominent reminder of the problem of litter and we hope will inspire dialogue about ways to prevent it. We encourage residents to participate in this community art by adding some of their retrieved litter to the wire baskets- especially our younger ones! Last year's Pine Hill students were great participants in the project!

We are asking people to sign up to commit to pick up litter sometime during April. Litter has accumulated on our roadsides, adjacent to sidewalks, at the edges of recreational areas such as Fessenden and Laurel Field, and spilled into our wetlands, open spaces, and nature trails. You can pick WHERE and WHEN you want to do this.

In addition, we are coordinating four weekend pickups on Saturday mornings from 8-10, with traffic safety support from our Police Department to focus on one main road area during each Saturday: Coolidge St, Western Ave, North Main Street from Coolidge to the Natick Line and Washington Street from Pine Hill to the South Natick Line.

Together we can make a difference in our town, our natural envionment - and get some exercise and fresh air along the way!
