- Adopt-A-Street: You can help keep our town clean and litter free by joining the Adopt-a-Street program. Adopting groups care for roads and surrounding public spaces throughout East Longmeadow, picking up trash along their adopted street/ area segment. Participating in Adopt-a-Street is a great way to show your civic pride, engage with colleagues and friends, and build community ties for a year long commitment. Program flyer. See below for more information and application.
- Organize: We are just a few families who were fed up with the trash we see once the snow melts. We hope that our kids learn about rolling up our sleeves and joining together to make a difference, starting in our own backyards. We can use any & all help to make this a great town-wide event. Thank you in advance! Call the East Longmeadow Health Department @ 413-525-5400 x 1106 or Rec Department at 413-525-5400 x 1300 to help!
- Spread the word: We need eyeballs. Post this link page far and wide, have flyers in your windows & customer facing areas, most importantly talk to your friends, teammates & neighbors. #EIEarthDay @(Model.BulletStyle == CivicPlus.Entities.Modules.Layout.Enums.BulletStyle.Decimal ? "ol" : "ul")>

Thank you the over 250 registered East Longmeadow volunteers who got up early on a Saturday to pick up nasty, old litter at last year's (2021) Earth Day Cleanup Event! I mean THESE are our people! East Longmeadow was buzzing with folks who found some of the most strange trash including a fish tank, a child's jeep, a bag of shoes, a boat & unidentifiable large metal & wood things! Great job to everyone to help make this a great event. The Earth thanks you.
