Litter Free China program to continue

In past summers, you may have noticed volunteers picking up litter along Lakeview Drive, in China and South China villages, a portion of Rte. 3, Rte. 32, and part of the Neck Road. Let’s resume our efforts on Saturday, July 8, from 10 a.m. to noon, with a backup rain day on July 15, same time. We realize litterers will continue to litter, but maybe seeing volunteers picking up will encourage some to think twice. Please respond by email at and advise what section of our roads you are willing to work.

It would be great to include Rte. 32 down to Erskine Academy and towards Vassalboro, the full Neck Road, Cross Rd,. and any other roads where you live. I’ll be away June 14 through June 30 and will read your emails upon return. Solo volunteers and group participation is welcome, pick a stretch you care about. Be aware of traffic, wear bright clothing, bring bags and gloves, and please take full bags to the transfer station. Let’s strive for a Litter-Free China!

Thanks, Richard Dillenbeck.
