The Office of Mayor Stephen L. DiNatale, along with the Department of Health and the Department of Public Works is inviting the community to participate in the 2021 Annual Ward Clean Ups for streets and parks. These ward cleanup efforts involve support from community groups, businesses, schools and civic groups working together to make our community more welcoming and vibrant.
“This year, more than ever, we need our residents support,” said Mayor DiNatale. “By volunteering to clean up your neighborhoods, parks and roadways you are investing in our great city and promoting community pride. Fitchburg has numerous parks and trails that enhance our quality of life and we need many volunteering hands to help maintain these inviting and beautiful spaces.”
This year’s Ward Clean-Ups have been scheduled for three consecutive Saturday events:
- Wards 4 & 5 – April 24th from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM at FPS Parking Lot, Corner of Academy St & High St.
- Wards 1 & 6 – May 1st from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM at IC Credit Union, 300 Bemis Rd
- Wards 2 & 3 – May 8th from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM at Daniels Street Park (Lower Cleghorn)
Volunteers are needed to help with litter pick up along our streets and parks. Dumpsters will be available at each location for bulk items and non-residential trash found throughout the ward. DPW staff will be available to aide in picking up large items that volunteers are unable to bring to the transfer sites, as well as curbside trash bags from large neighborhood clean ups. City personnel will be available at each transfer site to assist with the disposal.
DPW Street Sweepers will also be out in the wards during each ward cleanup. Please sweep sidewalk debris onto the street, however, kindly refrain from creating piles!
Lite refreshments will be provided for breakfast and lunch at the transfer site. The Health Department will supply yellow trash bags, gloves and masks at each event.
