Green Up Day

Green Up Day 5 2 15-1

Green Up Day is Saturday, May 1st. Green Up Day is a special day in Vermont when volunteers come for a massive, spring clean up of litter. It's an opportunity to make Montpelier sparkle!

If you’d like to volunteer with Montpelier’s Green Up Day efforts, stop by the Green Up Day stations in front of Montpelier City Hall and at the Capital City Farmers Market on Green Up Day between 9am and 1pm. There, we will have Green Up Day bags and gloves for volunteers.

To ensure everyone's safety, Green Up Day volunteers are strongly encouraged to wear gloves and to adhere to current Vermont Department of Health protocols.

This year especially, we ask Montpelier volunteers to use our online mapping tool (, a no-touch platform for coordinating our city’s Green Up Day efforts. The online mapping tool allows volunteers to see which areas have been claimed and which ones we still need help with in real time. To claim a stretch of road, park, or parking lot using the tool, click the small Green Up Day icon under the search bar, and then select a street, park, or parking lot. This will allow you to “adopt” the area.

Volunteers can leave their full Green Up Day bags curbside within city limits. The crew from the Montpelier Department of Public Works will pick up the bags of litter after Green Up Day.

Thank you for your help to make Montpelier sparkle!
