Earth Day is an annual event held to demonstrate public support for environmental protection and preservation. First launched in the United States in 1970, Earth Day is now celebrated worldwide with more than 193 countries participating.

Each year, the City of Troy sponsors an citywide cleanup event coinciding with Earth Day. This community event brings together residents, families, and business owners to improve community parks, green spaces and neighborhoods across the city.

For more information on Troy’s annual Earth Day cleanup, or to organize a cleanup project in your neighborhood, please contact Renee Panetta, City Recycling Coordinator, or Naomi Pitkin, City Recycling Specialist, at [email protected] or call (518) 279-7313.
