Green Up Day

Green Up Day logo

Green Up Day is Saturday, May 7th. 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!

Our beautiful Green Mountain state is made greener on this day as thousands of volunteers cooperate to get rid of litter on banks, highways, streets and parks in a massive spring clean up. Join the effort!

If you’d like to volunteer with Montpelier’s Green Up Day efforts, stop by the Green Up Day stations at the Capital City Farmers Market on Green Up Day between 9am and 1pm or on Langdon Street at the Bike Swap between 8am and 12pm. There, we will have Green Up Day bags and gloves for volunteers.

You can also get bags ahead of time in the City Clerk's Office in City Hall and sign up ahead of time using our online mapping tool.

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!
