Newburgh Community Cleanup

In celebration of Earth Day and to inspire the Newburgh community to keep the city clean and green, Safe Harbors of the Hudson will hold a Newburgh Community Cleanup event on Saturday, May 7. This is an opportunity for community members, young and old, to be a part of what’s good in the City of Newburgh. The cleanup will be held from 9:00 am-1:00 pm and a post-cleanup celebration will be held from 1:00-3:00 pm.

The cleanup efforts will cover the city from North Street to Bay View Terrace, and from Downing Park east to River Road. Safe Harbors is seeking cleanup participants of all ages, but children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Participants should arrive no later than 8:30 am to the Broadway/Liberty Street Lot, adjacent to the Ritz Theater. Supplies will be provided to participants and Safe Harbors is seeking sponsors to donate items as heavy duty trash bags and work gloves.

For more information about the event or to get involved, contact June Henley at (845) 562-6940 ext. 110 or
