SARATOGA SPRINGS —The City of Saratoga Springs announced its upcoming Earth Day celebration on April 22 will include a call to action for local citizens to volunteer and help pick up garbage and litter from the front of their homes and the right-of-way areas, in honor of the 25th Anniversary of the “Keep America Beautiful” movement.
The event will culminate in a community cleanup event in Congress Park from noon to 2 p.m.
Commissioner of Accounts Dillon Moran and Commissioner of Public Works Jason Golub will be in attendance to support the event.
“Earth Day is an important opportunity to raise awareness about the critical need to protect our environment,” said Moran, in a statement. “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.”
Bonacio Construction and Stewart’s Shops were recognized by Golub for their donation of time and resources to help clean downtown public parking garages, and Saratoga County Supervisor Matt Veitch added his appreciation for the Southwest Neighborhood Association’s commitment to the cause.
