TROY, NY – Mayor Madden today announced the City of Troy will hold an informational meeting for the Collar City’s annual Earth Day Cleanup event. The meeting will be held at 6:00pm, Monday, March 18th, in the Main Conference Room at City Hall (433 River Street). All interested residents and community organizations are invited to attend and provide information on neighborhood cleanup projects.
Mayor Madden said, “Building a cleaner, greener community is what Earth Day is all about, and our annual citywide cleanup gives residents an opportunity to make a direct and positive impact in their neighborhood. Community involvement is a critical part of a successful Earth Day event, and I encourage residents to attend and participate in this year’s improvement program.”
Each year, residents, families and business owners come together during Earth Day to organize community-driven cleanup and beautification projects at local parks, green spaces, and neighborhoods across Troy. In 2018, more than 18 individual projects were organized with over a hundred participants lending a hand to improve their corner of the Collar City.
