The Bloomfield Beautification Committee and the Clean Communities Program are holding a town-wide cleanup on Saturday, April 24. The cleanup is sponsored by the Mayor, Town Council and the DPW and will take place between 8am-12pm.

“Keeping our neighborhoods clean and continuing to ensure that Bloomfield remains a terrific place to live is why we hold these town-wide cleanups,” said Mayor Venezia. “This is an excellent opportunity for residents to build community and truly take ownership of the spaces in which they live. I look forward to seeing residents once again come out with us for a few hours.”

Participants may choose their own location and gloves, garbage pickers, bags, rakes, and shovels will be dropped off and picked up by the Bloomfield DPW. Individuals as well as groups are invited to participate.

To sign up, go to by April 15. T-shirts will also be provided.

“Over the last few years we have expanded participation in this program from around 60 residents to more than 300 residents and we are looking forward to seeing the program continue to grow,” said Councilwoman Jenny Mundell. “I greatly appreciate how involved our residents are and always enjoy these opportunities to interact with people in such a worthwhile setting. Special thanks to the Bloomfield Beautification Committee and Department of Public Works as well as the Bloomfield Division of Public Safety for their collaboration and planning to make this event both safe and worthwhile.”
