We are so appreciative of the overwhelming response of volunteers for our Longmeadow Earth Day call to action. While we are no longer accepting volunteers for sign-up for the event, we encourage Longmeadow citizens to share in the spirit of the Earth Day by walking in your neighborhood and picking up litter there. Thank you!

**Update on the tonnage of trash collected at The Earth Day Clean-Up, as well as types of trash, including hazardous waste.
Trash--The trash that was in the roll-off when they emptied it was 1.44 tons or 2,880 pounds of trash.
Recycle-- The recycling amount was 3 cubic yards OR 600 pounds of bottles and cans. There was also a lot of metal that was sorted for recycling.
Hazardous waste-- Volunteers collected rusted paint cans, 5 gallons of stuff and at least one container of oil. None of the above includes what was collected by DPW on Monday--except for the tonnages.
Amazing job to everyone who volunteered and helped clean our community!
