Shelton legislators to get hands dirty in cleanup of downtown street

In observance of Earth Day, Shelton’s three state legislators will “adopt” Center Street in downtown Shelton as part of “Shelton Clean Sweep.

The legislators — state Sen. Kevin Kelly and state Reps. Jason Perillo and Ben McGorty — will clean Center Street on Saturday, April 25 from 9-10:30 a.m., and the public is welcome to join them.

Clean Sweep is an annual spring cleanup sponsored by the Shelton Anti-Litter Committee.

Volunteers from all over Shelton are cleaning up various roadways and open spaces throughout the city as part of the Clean Sweep effort.

Participants receive 2015 Shelton Clean Sweep patches, and credit is available for high school community service hours.

Those interested in cleaning up different locations in Shelton, or looking for other ways to help, should go to for information.

Center Street is about a quarter mile in length, going from Howe Avenue to Perry Hill Road (where it turns into Bridgeport Avenue).
