As a thank you to all the fine people of Bolton for pitching in to help keep our roadsides clean and green, we’re saying thank you by celebrating with free hamburgers and hotdogs while listening to the music of the Bolton’s own Woodstack!

Green-Up Day Activities:

Saturday, May 7th

Pick up designated Green Up Bags at the Town Office, Bolton Store, or Smilie School (bags will be available 24/7 in a container on the porch at the Town Office).

Pick up roadside litter and leave full Green Up Bags and other bulky items along the roadside for the Town Highway Crew to pick up or bring the waste to the Town Garage. If you want to transport any collected material yourself, please drop it off at the Town Highway Garage.

Pick up Smilie School grounds – The Smilie Community Association is holding their annual Smilie School Clean-Up Day from 9:00 to 12:00. Grab a rake, come on down and help beautify Smilie!

Pick up lunch, chat with neighbors, and listen to some live music at Smilie School 12:00 to 3:00

To help keep Bolton beautiful. To foster our community spirit. To take a green bag out for a walk.  Note:   If you come upon a pile of debris too large to clean up, please let the Town Office know about it so that we can send out a special ops team to take care of it at a later date!  Thank you!

Important Information from GREEN UP VT:
Due to its dangerous nature, Green Up Day volunteers while Greening Up are absolutely not to touch or pick up any discarded needles or suspicious items such as propane tanks, common household containers (bleach, laundry detergent, etc.) in un-common quantities.
Instead, they are to tell their Town Coordinator the location of items, even if just a single needle. We are advising all Town Coordinators to also not touch these items. They are to notify their town officials — Town Clerks, Selectboards, who are to then notify appropriate people trained in proper clean up of hazardous waste.
The above is the official position of our Green Up Vermont organization as determined by its Board of Directors.

Welcome to the Town of Bolton, Vermont


Town of BoltonWelcome to the Bolton, Vermont website.

The town of Bolton is located in the western foothills of the Green Mountains, on the eastern edge of the Lake Champlain Valley. The Winooski River bisects the town from east to west, as does Interstate 89, the New England Central Railway and U.S. Route 2.  Chartered in June 1763, Bolton is a small rural municipality that prides itself on many unique aspects: we are a tight-knit community with acres of forested land bisected by recreational trails, majestic ridge lines, rugged rocky outcrops, and valley-bottom cropland, all tucked in between working landscapes and our beloved Green Mountains.
