- On April 25, hundreds of volunteers from the Coes Zone Task Force, Working For Worcester, the City Manager's office and other community groups worked to clean up Coes Pond. They cut down so much brush and branches that the dumpster that day was quickly filled up. Unfortunately, that load was only half of what was cut down so half still remains at the beach.
But thanks to Casella Waste Systems, another Dumpster is on the way for another group of volunteers next weekend. Casella has provided support for a number of cleanups across the city, including several Working for Worcester sites, City Manager's Clean Team events, and Earth Day cleanups.
Thank you to Casella from the city of Worcester. - View Photo - Tue 05/12/2015 06:43 AM
