Harwich Conservation Trust to Hold 5th Annual Tour de Trash

HARWICH – Volunteers will be gathering in Harwich later this month for a late celebration of Earth Day by helping to clean up the community.

The 5th annual Tour de Trash is hosted by The Harwich Conservation Trust, in partnership with the Town’s Conservation Department, AmeriCorps Cape Cod and the Tour de Trash Planning Committee.

Each year the groups lead volunteers to fan out across Harwich to pick up trash for a thorough spring cleaning.

Dress appropriately for the weather and for walking. Separate bags for trash and recyclables will be provided, along with reflective vests, pickers, and disposable nitrile gloves.

Things get started on Saturday April 27th at 9:30 a.m. at the Harwich Community Center, and the trash pick-up will last until noon. Following the clean-up, volunteers will be provided with lunch.

In 2018, Tour de Trash volunteers removed over 1,200 lbs. of trash and 500 lbs. of recycling from roadsides and other areas around town.
