Volunteers sought to Keep Bristol Clean


As the weather improves and tourist season begins in Bristol and around the state, town officials are looking to local residents to help them Keep Bristol Clean.

In honor of Earth Day, Bristol has organized a town wide cleanup on April 26, 9:30 a.m. to noon. Beginning at 9 a.m. with an energy burst of coffee and doughnuts at the Public Works Department, 111 Mt. Hope Ave., volunteers will spread out throughout the town to do a little spring cleaning.

The town has identified 33 key locations in need of a little sprucing up. Some locations include:

  • Independence Park and the bike path to Poppasquash
  • The Mt. Hope Boat Ramp
  • North Farm
  • Town common
  • Town beach and parking lot
  • Vet's Park
  • State Street Dock
  • East Burial Ground
  • Fireman's Park
  • Thompson Park on Hope Street

For the complete list of targeted locations or for more information, contact Robert Holt or Carol Mello at 401-253-4100.
