Dear editor, I would like to thank Bill and Karen Gerrie for their recent letter regarding litterbugs at work in the countryside. The thoughtlessness of so many drivers is difficult to understand. It seems to be an epidemic and many of us are grateful for the snow that is now masking the ugly accumulation in the ditches. The Town Litter Free Committee was created to address this situation. We encourage everyone to take pride in our community and keep garbage in your car until you can dispose of it in a proper manner. The anti-litter signage that the Gerries mentioned is one of several initiatives of this committee. Thanks to the Gerries also for participating in the annual spring clean up. Plans are now under way to make the 2007 spring Clean Up Events larger and more successful than ever before. Letters have just been sent from the Litter Free Halton Hills Committee to community groups and leaders asking for assistance. This year we hope to have groups and individuals take a leadership role for each of our litter hotspots. We will publish this information in advance so that everyone can join in at any of our locations and know that a leader is there with bags and gloves. The 20 Minute Makeover that targets businesses and schools is set for Friday April 20th and the Community Wide Clean Up is scheduled for Saturday April 21 with a rain date of April 28. We hope that all participants will register with the town well in advance to assist us in the organization of these events and for the collection of the litter at the end of the day. Any group or individual wishing to participate is asked to call the Town Works Department for further information at 905-873-2601, ext. 2610.

Fogal, Jane
