Green Up Day

Green Up Day 5 2 15-1

Green Up Day, the first Saturday in May, is a special day in Vermont when thousands of volunteers come out in their communities for a massive spring clean up of litter. It is the largest statewide volunteer event in Vermont with over 22,000 taking part, and the only statewide Green Up Day in the United States. 

Montpelier Alive coordinates Green Up Day in Montpelier, and we'd love to have you join us to keep Montpelier beautiful! 

-If you are an individual or small group, join us at the Capitol City Farmers Market at our table on Saturday, May 4th to pick up materials and receive a street assignment.

You can also stop by the City Clerk's office to pick up your bag, and then visit to claim your streets. Thank you to Nick Floersch and Stone Environment for supporting our online Green Up Day Map!

-If you are a corporate or other large group, please contact Nate Hausman at

Thanks to our amazing downtown businesses, individuals participating will receive a sheet of valuable coupons and promotions as a thank you for helping keep Montpelier beautiful!
