The Town of Amherst is hosting a Community Cleanup on Saturday, May 4th from 9AM-11AM. There will be three meeting locations throughout the Town, each will have an area captain stationed to organize and assist volunteers. Several Town Councilors will be serving as area captains. We will provide collection bags for trash and recycling and work gloves (please bring your own if you do have a pair). Public Works will assist with the collection of the bags after the event.
Light refreshments will be available at the Meeting Points.
