Today is Earth Day. Redding's annual Rid Litter Day will take place Saturday on the Town Green.
Residents are called on to help build Mt Trashmore by picking up roadside trash that has accumulated over the winter months. This is Redding's way of celebrating the nationally recognized Earth Day and to act "locally". The trash collected on the green is then brought back to the Transfer Station and weighed. The collection is from 9am to 3pm.
Ridgefield’s Rid Litter Days are Saturday and Sunday. Volunteers will be picking up litter in neighborhoods throughout the town. Refuse bags and safety vests can be picked up at Parks & Recreation on Danbury Road, at Town Hall, and at the Chamber of Commerce office on Grove Street. Drop off points for filled refuse bags are Farmingville Elementary School, East Ridge Middle School, Ridgefield High School, Branchville Elementary School, and the Parks and Rec Auxiliary Parking Lot.
