50K Challenge is Overwhelming Success

Keep Milford Clean


In less than two months, the city achieved its goal in the “50K By Earth Day Litter Challenge.”

From April 1 to May 11, which was Earth Day, the city’s Conservation Commission and volunteers collected more than 62,473 pieces of litter.

Individuals, families, schools, civic organizations and businesses all volunteered ridding the city of litter and trash accumulated over the winter, Blake said.

“These volunteer endeavors complement the work done by our Public Works Department and many private efforts to keep our community clean and green,” Blake wrote.

Steve Johnson, the city’s Open Space and Natural Resource Agent, helped spearhead efforts to collect litter by organizing volunteers.
