The City of Amsterdam Earth Day Cleanup Sponsored by Century 21 Purtell Realty and Montgomery County Chairman Legislator Robert Purtell

Amsterdam, NY – The City of Amsterdam celebrates Earth Day with our annual Earth Day Clean-Up Sponsored by Century 21 Purtell Realty and Montgomery County Legislator Robert Purtell on Saturday, April 22nd from 8:30am-1pm at Veterans Park (lower parking lot). Volunteers can pick up gloves and garbage bags and enjoy free breakfast, lunch, and drinks. 

Mayor Cinquanti stated “I can’t think of a more helpful and enjoyable way for Amsterdam residents to spend their Saturday. First, they get to work up an appetite in the morning, by participating in one of our City’s Spring Clean-up projects and then in the afternoon they get to fill themselves up with delicious chicken wings served by our amazing group of locally owned restaurants. Our city wins, our local restaurants win and best of all we get to spend the day with family and friends!”

County Chairman and Legislator Robert Purtell stated “This is a good opportunity for every individual and organization in our city to spend a little time cleaning up their own property, curbsides, and vacant lots in their own neighborhoods. A little bit of volunteer cleanup effort from a whole bunch of people at the same time makes a huge difference in the appearance of our city. Join us this Saturday and take pride in your community.”

This year we’re happy to announce that we will be partnering with GreenSheenPaint and Grow Amsterdam NY Inc to host a free paint collection event on Earth Day at Veteran’s Park (lower parking lot) from 9am-1pm.

We will be accepting all your unwanted and leftover paint products. We can accept latex paint, stains, shellac, lacquer, varnish, sealers, textured coatings, oil paint and urethanes. Paint should be in its original sealed can with the label. We can’t accept aerosol paint, paint thinner, solvents, cleaning agents, gasoline, drywall compound, caulks, or household hazardous waste. The paint will be recycled into new paint.
