Each year students, parents, business owners, and other residents gather to give the town of Mansfield, Massachusetts a thorough spring cleaning. Volunteers fan out across town to pick up the trash that litters our roadsides, parks, schools, and other public areas. The day concludes with a free picnic at the VIP Tent at the Comcast Center.
During the first Great American Cleanup of Mansfield in May 2008, more than 1,000 volunteers removed nearly five tons of litter and debris from roadsides and parks, including 200 bags of recyclables and more than 100 tires. Last year's cleanup was another great success, and we're looking to make the 2012 cleanup even better.
Mansfield’s volunteers join millions of others from across the nation in the Great American Cleanup between March 1 and May 31. Keep America Beautiful, the organization that created the Great American Cleanup, expects 3 million volunteers will participate in 30,000 community improvement activities and educational workshops in 17,000 communities nationwide this year. Activities include removing litter, beautifying parks, organizing a recycling or graffiti removal program, and other projects.
