Sullivan County's Annual Litterpluck Scheduled For This Saturday, April 25th

MONTICELLO – Sullivan County’s Annual Litterpluck Day takes place this Saturday, April 25. All school and community groups, as well as private citizens, are urged to participate.

“Our constituents do a wonderful job of cleaning and maintaining our communities, and Litterpluck is a great opportunity to volunteer a few hours to clean our parks and roadways, before our busy Bicentennial season begins,” said Legislative Majority Leader Kathleen LaBuda, who chairs the Legislative Public Works Committee.

LaBuda said, “Because not everyone is able to participate on the same day, the landfill and transfer stations will accept debris from April 18 through May 2 to allow each community an opportunity to participate.”

The Sullivan County Division of Public Works and Solid Waste will donate trash bags for this community-based roadside cleanup event, and will accept the roadside refuse and recyclables for disposal free-of-charge at the county landfill and transfer stations. All residents and groups who wish to participate in Litterpluck can pick up their Litterpluck materials at their town or village hall. While no coupons or sign-ins are required, all Litterpluck refuse and recyclables must be placed in clear bags.
