Commissioners Connie Manes and Melissa Cherniske were in front of the Davis IGA April 6 distributing green bags, sporting the commission logo, to volunteers with vests, gloves and plastic collection bags for the items collected along roadsides.

The commission is attempting to cover all of the town’s roads this year and has published a map highlighting which roads have been “claimed” by volunteers.

Kent’s Transfer Station will take the garbage collected, even for those who are not customers of the Transfer Station.

Anyone wanting to lend a hand is asked to fill out the online form.

“We hope you will participate in this group effort to make a noticeable difference all at once, in celebration of Earth Day and to demonstrate Kent community pride in the beauty of our town,” said Cherniske.

The Chamber of Commerce is co-sponsoring the effort. South Kent School will be out cleaning 12 miles of roads April 19.
