Welcome to the Town of Shaftsbury, Vermont
May 6 is Green Up Vermont Day. Help beautify our town by picking up your green Green Up trash bags at Cole Hall and at Paulin's and filling them with roadside trash. Bring Green Up bags to Cole Hall or leave them by the roadside. The Public Works Dept will pick them up on Monday and Tuesday. Bigger trash like tires pulled from ditches to the roadside will also be picked up. Parks Committee members will be at Cole Hall from 8 am to 2 pm to hand out bags, collect trash and provide information.
