Riverhead’s annual Litter Awareness and Spring Cleanup Day has been postponed by inclement weather.

The cleanup day has been rescheduled to  June 4, from 9 to 11 a.m., Councilman James Wooten announced last night.

Volunteers are asked to meet at Riverhead Town Hall at 9 a.m.  All residents are urged to participate.

The town will distribute trash bags, safety vests, gloves, and “litter-grabbers” to all volunteers and assign litter patrol areas. Volunteers may choose areas they know need particular attention.

For more information contact spring clean-up day coordinator Councilman James Wooten at (631) 727-3200 ext. 226.
