MIDDLESEX (AP) - Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin is going to be picking up trash along Interstate 89 in Middlesex to promote Green Up Day.

Saturday marks the annual Green Up Day, in which people across the state help pick up roadside litter that has accumulated over the year.

Shumlin will join Agency of Transportation workers on Friday as they pick up trash on Interstate 89 south.

Green Up Day has been a Vermont tradition since 1970.

Each town organizes its own Green Up activities.
