Recently, resident Carmen Chiungos took litter clean up into her own hands. Every single Saturday morning from April to October, Carmen and friends went out for 1 hour and picked up trash along Westford's roadways. The group was named the Litter League Green Team. The Highway Department has provided the Green Team with kits and supplies needed to be even more successful. These kits contain enough equipment and supplies for eight volunteers, and maybe be borrowed from the Highway Department.
Litter League Kits include:
- Yellow bags for trash, clear bags for recyclables
- Eight safety vests
- Glo-pink flag tape to mark tires and other objects too heavy for volunteers to lift
- Eight metal grabbers for picking up the trash
The Highway Department will collect the full bags and flagged items left at the roadside by the Litter League Teams. So get your neighborhood together, or your child's scout troop or your club members, and pick some dates to borrow the equipment. To sign up to borrow the kits, or to see what groups have scheduled the kits, visit the Litter League Green Team registration site
