Budget Dumpster Earth Day

Celebrating Earth Day 2018

Advocating for Cleaner Land, Air and Water

Each year on April 22, organizations, communities and individuals come together to celebrate Earth Day to increase awareness of environmental issues. What started in 1970 as a protest for a sustainable and healthy environment is now celebrated across the globe. Taking part in Earth Day is a way to demonstrate just how much you care about the future of the planet. Whether you plant a tree or clean up your neighborhood, it’s important to get involved and keep the momentum going all year long.

At Budget Dumpster, we support organizations nationwide with sustainable and environmentally focused missions. Check out some of the Earth Day events we were part of in 2018, then find ideas for making your own contributions to better the planet below.

Keep America Beautiful 
We partnered with six KAB chapters across the country to support their local cleanup efforts.

Charles River Watershed Association
The Charles River Watershed Association brings together 3,000 volunteers each year to celebrate Earth Day by picking up litter. We donated a dumpster in support of the 19th Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup. 

Neponset River Watershed Association
The Neponset River Watershed Association organized their annual spring cleanup all throughout the watershed. We provided a dumpster to help remove the litter they found.

Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper
In 2018, Budget Dumpster supported Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper’s annual Spring Shoreline Sweep, the largest single-day shoreline cleanup in Western New York.

Save the Bay
We provided a dumpster for Save the Bay’s Earth Day Cleanup, an event that brought together volunteers to pick up shoreline trash, which poses a hazard to local wildlife.
