Leonard Lookner Memorial Roadside Cleanup

The annual Leonard Lookner Memorial Camden Roadside Cleanup will take place on Friday and Saturday,  April 23rd and 24th.

Volunteers are invited to meet at Hannaford Supermarket parking lot in Camden at 9 a.m. both Friday and Saturday, where they will receive safety vests, equipment, and road assignments. To receive a road assignment in advance or for more information about volunteering, contact Alison McKellar at or Jenna Lookner at or 617-894-5766.

The cleanup began in 2017 as a celebration of Earth Day and to honor the late Leonard Lookner, a Camden Select Board member who died in 2017. Lookner routinely walked from his home on Melvin Heights Road into downtown Camden, filling his pockets with roadside trash during the approximately four-mile round-trip walk.
If you would like to clean a road at a different time, that is possible too, but we will need to know when you are doing it in order to get you supplies and coordinate a volunteer or the Public Works crew to pick up the bagged trash that you leave on the road. 

To sign up in advance, add your name to the spreadsheet. If you clean a road section on your own, either one listed or not listed, add that to the spreadsheet too! Our goal is to get them all, as well as the parking lots and other public (and maybe some private) spaces that accumulate litter.
