KEEPING SULLIVAN CLEAN AND GREEN

Supporting ‘Litter Pluck’ – Learning About the Environment

April 26, 2006

 

[MONTICELLO] – Sullivan Renaissance is encouraging individuals and communities to take part in the 15th Annual Litter Pluck on Saturday, May 6.  Renaissance projects from Roscoe to Barryville are already participating.

 

Sponsored by Sullivan County, Litter Pluck allows residents to clean debris from their roadways and parks, with the cost of the bags and dumping fees for the trash covered by the Division of Public Works (DPW).  Bags are available at the Sullivan County landfill.  For information on individual town and village efforts, contact the supervisor’s or mayor’s office in your municipality.

 

To support Litter Pluck, Sullivan Renaissance is sending information to all of its projects, notifying the news media, and placing advertisements in local newspapers.  Sullivan County Clerk George Cooke first announced the date of this year’s Litter Pluck during his address at the Sullivan Renaissance Winter Forum in February.

 

Environmental Awareness Seminar

Sullivan Renaissance is also holding a special “Environmental Awareness Seminar” on Wednesday, May 3 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the CVI Building in FerndaleAttendees will receive Litter Pluck totes for their communities. 

 

Topics include: “How individuals can encourage recycling in their community” with Bill Cutler of DPW; “What individuals can do to address conservation and development issues in their community” with Tom Alworth of the Catskill Center for Conservation and Development; “How to use the Sullivan 2020 Tool Box to address environmental issues” with the Division of Planning; and “How volunteers can incorporate composting into their projects” with Kelly Gipps of Gardens by Kelly.
