VOLUNTEER TO CLEAN UP LITTER! 1000 FEET OF STREET LITTER CLEANUP SAT 9/25, 8AM – 12PM

On Saturday September 25, please join Township Supervisors, Parks & Recreation, Litter & Beautification, Adopt a Road, and the Public Works Department to help clean up our Township’s Roads. Volunteers for this important program are always welcome and can contact Chris Rain at 570-223-8920, x119.  Supplies including bags, pickers, gloves and safety vests are all provided by the township as well as light refreshments.

How this works:  Volunteers sign in at the Township building by 8am on Saturday September 25 to get supplies, get split into groups, and depart to various locations throughout the Township to beautify Middle Smithfield. The Township volunteers will focus on our “Main Street” Route 209 and other roads throughout the Township. Middle Smithfield Township will provide reflective vests, road crew signs, and other supplies as needed.

Volunteers are also welcome to clean up on any day they want to if they can’t make the event on September 25.  They can also choose their own area, or have one assigned to them.  Middle Smithfield Township will provide bags, pickers, gloves, safety vests, and other supplies as needed and will collect the bags when volunteers are done.

Volunteers attending the cleanup on September 25th will receive breakfast at sign in.  All volunteers, regardless of the day they participate, will receive a Free Pass to the Township Cleanup and Freecycle as a thank you.

Middle Smithfield Township would like to thank our 2021 Platinum Parks Sponsors, Sheeley Insurance and King Spry, for helping to make this event possible.
