Earth Day roadside cleanup in Damariscotta

April 27, 2020 - April 30, 2020

trash on the side of the road

Celebrating Earth Day, COVID-19 style

Coastal Rivers and the Town of Damariscotta are partnering to organize a physically distant community-wide trash pick-up in celebration of Earth Day 2020!

Between April 27 and April 30, Damariscotta residents are encouraged to pick up trash in front of their homes and businesses.

When bags are filled, mark a one-foot “X” on the bags using something that will be visible from the road, such as masking tape or duct tape, and leave the bag at the side of the road. The “X” will indicate that they are part of the Earth Day clean-up, and town employees will be keeping an eye out for the marked bags on the side of the road between April 27 and April 30. They will pick up any bags they see and take them to the transfer station.

Please note, this service is provided for the Earth Day roadside clean-up only; participants are asked not to include any household trash.

In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19, we ask that participants supply their own trash bags, gloves, tape for marking the bags, and any other necessary equipment.

We would love to see your photos of the clean-up, either on Instagram at #coastalriverstrust, or by email at info@coastalrivers.org.
