We Did It!

Thanks to the over 115 volunteers who helped clean up the streets of Stow! Our town is clean once again!┬áNew (and a big hit!) this year: sustenance (scones) provided by Emma’s Cafe and hot coffee provided by Starbucks of Acton. Thank you to both!

7th Annual Stow Cleanup Scheduled for Saturday, May 2, 2015

Have you seen all the trash that’s appearing alongside the roads of Stow as the snow slowly disappears? Let’s plan on cleaning it up on Saturday, May 2, when the snow should be long gone (let’s hope!).

When Should We Clean Up?

Everywhere you look in Stow, there is snow:


Yet beneath the snow there lies trash. Bottles, cans, paper, plastic. …

So when the snow melts, we’ll need to clean it up. Stay tuned for the date of the 2015 Stow Cleanup Day, as yet to be determined.
