KEEP ROCKLAND BEAUTIFUL SEASON IS HERE: Aney Paul Organizes Earth Day Cleanup

Rockland County Legislator Aney Paul and a volunteer crew will participate in the 2017 Great American Cleanup sponsored by Keep Rockland Beautiful on Earth Day, which is Saturday, April 22. New volunteers are welcome.

Debris left on roadsides is often washed by rain and melted snow into local waterways through storm drains or blown directly into streams and lakes. These waterways help supply drinking water and serve as habitat for aquatic, plant and wild life. The spring cleanup helps rid local roadways of unsightly litter that accumulates during winter months, but the impact goes even deeper.

In 2014, Paul adopted the two-mile stretch of County Route 35A that runs between New Clarkstown Road in Nanuet and Route 59 in Spring Valley. She has organized several cleanups per year since 2014.

The Earth Day cleanup runs from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Meet at the Pascack Community Center at 87 New Clarkstown Road in Nanuet.
