Every year, the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce sponsors an official roadside cleanup event throughout the entire town of Warwick.
Grab your trash bag and join in the fun Sunday, April 22, through Sunday, April 29. Operation Clean Sweep is coordinated by the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce and Warwick Valley High School student Julia Vargas.
Various groups, clubs and individuals take part by pre-registering their routes in order to ensure garbage pickup by the Department of Public Works. (Please note that this is for roadside refuse, not homeowner garbage.)
Call 845-986-2720 to register your road in advance, or come in person on Saturday, April 28, from 8 a.m. to noon to the Caboose at South Street to register your road and enjoy free refreshments.
Garbage bags and gloves will be available to anyone who registers and can be picked up at the South Street Caboose at any time.

• The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence will be collecting used cell phones between 9 a.m. and noon:

• The Warwick Lions Club will host old eyeglass and hearing aid collection as well as a shredding truck in the South Street parking lot between 9 a.m. and noon. There is a suggested $5 donation per box or bag.
