New Canaan's Clean Your Mile Now Through April 28

The Town of New Canaan, Departments of Inland Wetlands and Watercourses, Parks, Highway and Public Works are joining forces with the Chamber of Commerce and Planet New Canaan to organize New Canaan's Clean Your Mile

 For the last several years, the Clean Your Mile effort has included three key components: New Canaan citizens individually tackling their neighborhoods; community groups scouring public spaces including parks and schools; and the Chamber's efforts with merchants to clean up sidewalks, storage areas and parking spaces surrounding the shops and restaurants.  New this year, Planet New Canaan will be cleaning the Five Mile River area on River Street on Saturday, April 27 with Surfrider Foundation from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon.  Volunteers are welcome to join.

The Clean Your Mile effort is scheduled for the week of April 22-April 28.  More than 250 individual volunteers and members of numerous community organizations will be asked to help give New Canaan its annual spring cleaning to help beautify our Town and environment. Parks, parking lots, schools and public areas will be designated to youth groups and civic organizations.  Individuals, families or groups who are willing to clean up roadside trash on their street can email Lola Sweeney, Administrative Assistant at  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Garbage bags are available at either the Public Works Department or Inland Wetlands at Town Hall.  Dumpsters will be located in the train station commuter lot Friday-Sunday. In addition, Public Works can be contacted at 203-594-3054 for pickup of objects too large for volunteers to remove.
