Earth Day Roadside Cleanup

A Friends of Acadia Community Volunteer Project
Saturday, April 25, 2020
8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Keep an eye out for your friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers as they turn out for the 20th annual Earth Day Roadside Cleanup, to collect a winter’s worth of trash from roadsides on MDI and Trenton. Always the last Saturday in April, it’s a great day to take pride in your community, get outside, and celebrate spring, FOA-style!  Online registration begins in late winter. For groups larger than 10, please contact Friends of Conservation Projects Manager Paige Steele at or call 207-288-3340. 

You can celebrate Earth Day—all year long—by keeping our roadsides trash-free. Please dispose of your garbage appropriately. Recycle and compost whatever you can, and place the remainder in trash cans or dumpsters. Or, you can walk out the front door of your home or business towards the next street or even the next driveway—trash bag in tow—and hold your own pick-up. We all have the power to make a difference in our communities.
