Subject: Hazardous waste off limits for Green Up Day clean up
The litter of the present is not the litter of the past.
Due to its dangerous nature, Green Up Day volunteers while Greening Up are absolutely not to touch or pick up any discarded needles or suspicious items such as propane tanks, common household containers (bleach, laundry detergent, etc.) in un-common quantities.
Instead, they are to tell their Town Coordinator the location of items, even if just a single needle. We are advising all Town Coordinators to also not touch these items. They are to notify their town officials -- Town Clerks, Selectboards, who are to then notify appropriate people trained in proper clean up of hazardous waste.
The above is the official position of our Green Up Vermont organization as determined by its Board of Directors.
