The prizes are provided by the Tiverton Litter Committee.

DPW approved green bags and gloves will be available at Essex Library starting Monday, April 8.

The kick off for the week will take place on Saturday, April 13 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Grinnell’s Beach, when gloves and green bags will be handed out.
