Caledon is joining municipalities across the country, in partnership with GLAD’s Clean Canada Together campaign, to support community clean-up initiatives. Celebrate Earth Day, April 22, with a community clean-up or just by picking up litter in your neighborhood.
“We invite you to participate in Earth Day by helping clean up your communities,” said Mayor Allan Thompson. “If you can’t participate in a community clean-up, we encourage you to pick up litter in your neighborhood or local park and include the items in your weekly waste collection.”
Register your clean-up date and location with the Town, round up your volunteers, pick up supplies, and help make your local parks and trails shine. The Town will provide bags for garbage and recyclables (compliments of GLAD) along with plastic gloves, safety information and guidelines, and removal of filled bags from designated locations. Clean-up events from April 22 through mid-May are encouraged.
Clubs, schools and businesses will be required to provide a certificate of insurance with the Town of Caledon named as additional insured. Neighborhood groups must have all participants sign a waiver provided by the Town.
Share your clean-up story on Facebook and Twitter to inspire others to do the same: #CleanCanadaTogether, #CleanCaledonTogether. To register your clean-up date and location, visit caledon.ca/trails.
