Is the ONLY annual town-wide clean up event that occurs the first Saturday of May. Participation can be done individually, as a family or group (scouts, sports teams, civic or religious groups etc.) and is a great opportunity to enjoy the community outdoors while contributing to the look and value of your community.

A huge thank you to the 173 Participants that cleaned up 94 locations around town. Thank you to the volunteers for working the event and beyond grateful to the following in-town businesses that fed and/or provided supplies to make this all happen. No doubt 2019 was the most successful cleanup event we have had and we will have many improvements to make it even more successful when signing in next year. We hope you and many more will join us again next year! Check out full stats on this years event here

We received generous grants this year. Thanks to the Ashland Selectman Grant and the New England Grassroots Environment Fund grant, we were able to purchase a wonderful trash/recycle bin that will be located at the KidSpot area at Stone Park. Ashland DPW was so happy to have this unit placed there as well. It helps spread awareness of recycling and keeping the area cleaner.

 You can help increase public awareness of environmental needs along our roadways by making sections of certain roadsides available for “adoption.”  This gives the adopting individuals/groups/businesses  opportunities to improve the appearance of our roadsides throughout Ashland.
