Cornwall ON – Show your community pride and join us for the Spring CleanUp Challenge from April 16th to April 26th!
Team up with friends, family, or co-workers and help make your neighbourhood litter-free.
As the winter snow melts, debris and litter that have collected during the winter months are exposed. Each year, the City organizes a city-wide clean-up effort to address this issue.
In previous years, there have been a number of community groups and individuals who have pitched in to clean up problem spots, such as vacant lots, road boulevards, ditches and waterfront areas.
Individuals and groups must register online on the City’s website for a chance to win prizes. Residents participating in clean-up efforts can use their weekly garbage collection day to dispose of collected garbage, or they can bring collected garbage and recyclables to the Civic Complex on Saturday, April 16th from 9am to 1 pm.
City staff will be giving away free spruce trees (limited quantities) to participants and a number of community groups will also be on hand:
• Agape Centre
• Cornwall and District Horticultural Society
• Benson’s BBQ
• Raisin Region Conservation Authority
The Spring Clean-Up Challenge continues until April 26 and encompasses Earth Day (April 22). For more information, please check out the City’s website www.Cornwall.ca
“It is important that we keep our City clean from both a safety and long-term environmental stewardship point of view,” said Mayor Bob Kilger. “I would urge all citizens to take a few moments and help Cornwall look its best for both residents and visitors alike.”
