SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — The city will be celebrating Earth Day this year with a call to action for community cleanup.
This year’s Earth Day celebration falls on April 22. This year is also the 25th anniversary of the “Keep America Beautiful” movement. Saratoga Springs is calling its citizens to action to volunteer and help pick up garbage and litter from the front of their homes and right of way areas. The event will culminate in a community cleanup event in Congress Park from noon to 2 pm.
Commissioner of Accounts Dillon Moran and Commissioner of Public Works Jason Golub will be in attendance to support this event.
“Earth Day is an important opportunity to raise awareness about the critical need to protect our environment,” Moran said in a news release. “By volunteering to pick up litter and garbage from our neighborhoods and public space, we can all do our part to create a cleaner and more sustainable future for our community.”
Commissioner Golub echoed Commissioner Moran’s sentiments and expressed his appreciation for public-private collaboration for cleaning up the City’s downtown public parking garages.
“We are especially grateful for the generous donation of time and resources by Bonacio Construction and Stewart’s Shops to help clean up our downtown public parking garages. This is an excellent opportunity for all of us to come together and make a positive impact on our environment,” Golub said in the release.
Saratoga County Supervisor Matt Veitch added his appreciation for the Southwest Neighborhood Association’s commitment to the cause.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Southwest Neighborhood Association and all of our citizens for this important event,” said Veitch in the release.
The City of Saratoga Springs encourages all citizens to participate in Earth Day and to take an active role in making our community a cleaner and more sustainable place to live. Additional information about this event will be posted at www.saratoga-springs.org and https://www.facebook.com/ssnygov.
