Street & Stream Cleanup 2021
There’s something we can do to make Orono even more beautiful this time of year.
Though the Town is unable to host the Street & Stream Cleanup in the same form as in years past, you can still get fresh air and exercise, not to mention the sense of accomplishment that comes with taking trash to task, by volunteering to clean up the neighborhood.
Volunteer teams have from now until May 15th to register! Choose your own clean-up day!
Join us for a short talk about safety and why we clean up our streets on May 15th at 9:00 AM via Zoom (link to be emailed after registration).
Registering will also get you a clean-up kit with gloves, trash bags, 5 gallon buckets and a gift certificate for lunch for each member of your team.
We recommend doing your clean-up on May 15th when we will have Public Works available to pick up collected trash by the road side. If you choose to do your clean-up on a different day, please include your collected trash with your regular curbside trash pickup. Be careful about the trash you pick up! If it’s too heavy, or if it is potentially contaminated (needle, soda bottle, etc), be safe! Mark the location for Public Works or Public Safety and call Rob Yerxa at 207-889-6101.
After you’ve finished, show off your hard work by emailing us photos of your cleaned-up area.
The Town of Orono recommends this group activity be limited to those in the same household. If you plan to coordinate with others to clean the same area, remember to keep the total persons to under ten (10), and practice safe physical (6 feet between) distancing.
Street & Stream Poster Competition Help us get the word out about the Street & Stream Clean-up and you could win $50! If you’re a student in Grades K-12, you are eligible to enter the poster competition for the Street & Stream Clean-up. Posters are due on Friday, April 23, 2021.
