POTTSTOWN CARES SPRING CLEANUP

EARTH DAY CLEANUP
Lock 60 at Schuylkill Canal Park
Lend a helping hand with some basic sprucing up throughout Mont Clare and Port Providence. Volunteers are requested to report to Lock 60 by 9 a.m. and sign in at the Locktender's House. From there, it's onto the Earth Day assignments of trail clearing, tire removal, litter pick-up, flower-planting, tending the herb garden, and removing fallen branches and trees. Appropriate dress (jeans, work shoes, gloves) is recommended.
Township and Borough residents will be able to recycle hazardous household materials, appliances, shred personal documents, recycle old tires and volunteer their time to clean up the community. This event is free to Township and Borough residents and is not for commercial use. Volunteers can assist with community service projects that include cleaning up stream banks and trash removal at parks throughout the Township.
