Environment Committee:

The purpose of this Committee is to improve the environment and conserve natural resources in the community while supporting the principles of recycle, reduce, and reuse.

The Committee is currently partnering with the Public Service Committee on a Recycle Beyond the Bag Project. This project involves the collection of plastic recyclable items with a goal to collect enough recyclables to receive a free Trex bench to donate.

Members of the ARC care for the environment by participating twice yearly in Clean Gloucester Days as well as regularly picking up roadside and shoreline trash. We plant sea grass to help maintain shorelines.
