NORWALK, Conn. — Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling is looking for volunteers to help with an upcoming citywide cleanup just in time for spring.
“It’s a challenge, if you will, to get people thinking in terms of everyone doing their part to help keep Norwalk clean and green,” Rilling told the Daily Voice.
The cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, April 9, and sponsored by Lowe’s, which opened in 2015 on Connecticut Avenue.
The Norwalk Redevelopment Agency and The Norwalk Department of Public Works will help coordinate the event.
Keep America Beautiful, which is sponsored by Lowe’s at the national level, along with the Greater Norwalk Chamber of Commerce and the AIC Program will also support the effort.
Rilling said the even is perfect for families, youth groups, clubs, and fraternal organizations. But residents don’t have to sign up to help.
“There’s no need to register, but were asking people to form teams, get involved and help out neighborhood associations, homeowners [and] business owners," Rilling said.
Volunteers can pick up supplies at Lowe’s at 10 a.m. on April 9.
Rilling said citizens can also help keep the city clean in their day-to-day activities. He said small changes — such as keeping a small trash bag in the car or keeping a lid on a garbage can — can go a long way.
For more information on the cleanup, call the city clerk’s office 203-854-7703.
