For Immediate Release: April 3, 2018
Time for Spring Cleaning, Sullivan County! Litter Pluck Returns Saturday, April 21 through Sunday, May 13
Monticello – The Sullivan County Legislature announces that Sullivan County’s Annual Litter Pluck will take place from Saturday, April 21 through Sunday, May 13, and all school and community groups, as well as private citizens, are urged to participate.
The County will fund the cost of the bags and the associated waste disposal fees for this event, through the County’s Parks, Recreation and Beautification Department and the Division of Public Works.
Agriculture & Sustainability Committee Chair and District 4 Legislator Catherine Owens encourages County residents to check with their local municipalities, as there are several organized litter pluck events being planned throughout the County.
“Participation in a town- or village-organized litter pluck event is a great opportunity for our residents to help combat litter at a local level,” she affirmed.
“More than ever, we need to look our best, and Litter Pluck is a hassle-free, cost-free way to spruce up our communities,” added District 7 Legislator Joe Perrello, chair of the Public Works Committee.
All residents and groups who wish to participate in the County’s Litter Pluck can pick up their Litter Pluck bags any time on or after April 13 at their town or village hall or County-operated transfer station. While no coupons are required, all Litter Pluck refuse must be placed in clear bags, and participants will be asked to register at the County-operated Transfer Station at the time of disposal.
For more information about Litter Pluck, please call Sullivan County Parks, Recreation, and Beautification Director Brian Scardefield at 845-807-0287.
