Many participated in the cleanup efforts on Earth Day (April 25) throughout the village of Baldwinsville collecting 1,980 lbs. of trash and tires.
A cleanup effort such as this aids the village in meeting requirements of the Phase II Municipal Stormwater Regulations for public education/participation and municipal good housekeeping criteria. It also beautifies and creates a healthier place for all who live and use these areas in the village.
