Keep Rehoboth Beautiful Litter Cleanup


Rehoboth - The Keep Rehoboth Beautiful Town-Wide Roadside Cleanup was a fantastic success! An event organized by the Keep Rehoboth Beautiful Committee, the cleanup ran from April 22nd to April 28th. Over 250 volunteers from across town worked to keep our roadsides clean! Individuals, neighborhoods, and local groups such as the Rehoboth Land Trust, Troop 13 Boy Scouts, Beckwith Community Service Group, Daisy Troop 694, and the Rehoboth Lions Club pitched in to pick up litter. Throughout the week of the event the Rehoboth Highway Department collected the full trash bags left at the side of the road by participants. By the end of the week, the Rehoboth Highway Department had brought 10 dump truck loads to the landfill, contributing greatly to the success of the event.

Free trash bags were provided by Land-Tek Maintenance and distributed at the following locations: Rehoboth Town Offices, Chartley Country Store, Manny & Sons Auto Repair & Tire Center, J&J Materials, Rehoboth Highway Department, Rehoboth Senior Center, Century 21 Real Estate, Blanding Public Library, Munroe Feed & Supply, Land-Tek Maintenance, and Waste Tech Disposal Services.

Safety orange t-shirts were provided to participants to ensure visibility on the road with the generous help of donations from the following local businesses: RE/MAX Integrity, Waste Tech Disposal, B&R Fournier, Flynn Pest Control, Ernie Boren/Century 21 Real Estate, Manny & Sons Auto Repair, Gladys L. Hurrell Senior Center, Cristallo Spa, Journey’s Haven Riding School, Confectionary Designs, The Grapevine, Anawan Pharmacy, Abbott Animal Hospital, Quarry Brothers, Chartley Country Store, Rehoboth Wine & Spirits, Munroe Feed & Supply, J&J Materials, Vino’s Family Cafe, Hillside Country Club, and Personal Best Physical Therapy.
