Newburgh Community Cleanup 2012

In celebration of Earth Day and to inspire the community to help keep Newburgh clean and green, Safe Harbors of the Hudson along with Central Hudson, City of Newburgh, Mount Saint Mary College, SUNY Orange, St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital and several other Newburgh-based community organizations, will hold a Newburgh Community Cleanup event on Saturday, May 12.

This is an opportunity for community members, young and old, to be a part of what’s great 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 Clinton Street to Renwick Street and from Downing Park east to Colden Street (view a map of the cleanup area here). Safe Harbors is seeking cleanup participants of all ages. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

Participants should arrive at the Broadway/Liberty Street Lot (adjacent to the Ritz Theater) by 8:30 am. Supplies will be provided to participants and Safe Harbors is seeking sponsors to donate items such as heavy duty trash bags and work gloves.
