Central Falls – On Saturday, April 20, the City of Central Falls hosted its Annual Earth Day Community Cleanup. City officials were thrilled to welcome over 150 volunteers and 15 organizations in beautifying the city’s parks and streets who picked up over 1 ton of trash throughout the city.
“Earth Day continues to grow in our community after our 8th year,” said Mayor James A. Diossa. “Our residents show they care for our great city and this is instrumental as we continue to work for a cleaner and healthier Central Falls .”
“I love Earth Day,” said Parks and Recreation and Community Services Director Rob Sayre-McCord. “It's always great to see a group of volunteers from the community coming together to beautify Central Falls, and it's an important event in role modeling behavior for our younger residents as stewardship of these places will pass to them as they grow older.”
According to the Earth Day Network, “Earth Day 2018 is dedicated to providing the information and inspiration needed to fundamentally change human attitude and behavior about plastics.”
