SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY (April 14, 2015) – The Sullivan County Legislature has announced that Sullivan County’s Annual Litter Pluck Day will take place on Saturday, April 25, and all school and community groups, as well as private citizens are urged to participate.
“Sullivan County’s Annual Litter Pluck is a popular event, and the Legislature appreciates that their constituents volunteer time to assist in the clean-up of the roadsides before the busy summer season” said Kathy LaBuda, Public Works Committee Chair.
LaBuda continued, “And because not everyone is able to participate on the same day, the County Transfer Stations will accept debris from Saturday, April 25 through Sunday, May 3, to allow each community an opportunity to participate. In light of expanded tourism opportunities coming to Sullivan County, now is the time for the County to present its beauty, not its littered roadsides, and a county-wide litter pluck effort will help accomplish this goal.”
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 for disposal free-of-charge at the County Transfer Stations. All residents and groups who wish to participate in Litter Pluck can pick up their Litter Pluck materials any time on or after Friday, April 17, 2015 at their Town or Village Hall or local Transfer Station. While no coupons are required, all Litter Pluck refuse must be placed in clear bags.
