Cleanups are ongoing in celebration of Earth Day in Burrillville, and there is still time to volunteer and take part.

To take part in the effort, residents should contact Trash & Recycling Coordinator Andrea Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org or (401) 710-4214, and let her know where they plan to collect trash.
