On Saturday, April 21 hundreds of individuals and organizations will hit the streets, parks, trails, vacant lots, and rural roads stuffing trash into garbage during the sixth annual Halton Hills Clean Up Day. Everyone is encouraged to target a particular part of town that is important to them personally. It may be your own road allowance or perhaps a neighbourhood park or ravine. The Town does not have the staff available to clean up all of these areas and therefore are reliant on volunteers to take an hour or two out of their busy schedules to make a difference we can all appreciate. Families are particularly encouraged to volunteer as everyone, regardless of age, can make a valuable contribution. Many locations already have leaders who will be on-site with bags and gloves. Please call the Public Works Department to find clean up sites or to register the location you have chosen. Arrangements can also be made for the Town to pick up the collected litter. Please call 905-873-2601 ext. 2610. High school students are reminded that they can use their community clean up hours towards their volunteer requirements if their time can be verified. Free garbage bags and gloves are available for participants at the Town Works Yards, the Acton and Georgetown BIA offices, and the Halton Hills Chamber of Commerce at 328 Guelph Street. The rain date will be April 28. Tim Hortons and Superior Glove are again sponsoring this event.
