City residents are once again being asked to participate in Clean Up Corner Brook for another year.
This weekend, on Saturday and Sunday, individuals and groups are encouraged to donate at least 30 minutes of their time within those two days to pick up litter on their respective properties and parking lots, neighbourhood streets, or to adopt a public green space.
Clean Up Corner Brook hopes to mobilize residents, community groups, businesses, institutions and schools on the theory that many hands make short work. Everyone is encouraged to select a particular part of town to clean up the litter. It may be a residential road, perhaps a neighbourhood park or public green space.
Participants are asked to register with the city by calling 637-1630, visiting City Hall or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Free garbage bags and cotton gloves will be available to community groups and individuals who register and can be picked up at City Hall. Businesses and schools are asked to use their normal garbage and recycling bins for the litter pick-up.
