On Saturday, April 23, the City of Guelph is hosting its 13th annual Guelph Clean and Green Community Cleanup—one of the city’s largest community environmental cleanup events.
This is your opportunity to spend a few hours “spring cleaning” your neighbourhood by joining hundreds of participants to pick up litter along Guelph’s streets, green spaces, and community parks. Some of you have participated in the past and I wanted to provide you with the information and a quick link to register for this year if you like.
Last year, more than 750 participated and picked up more than 3,000 kilograms of litter. It is true that when we work together, we can make a big difference.
The 2016 cleanup is open to everyone: individuals, teams, and neighbourhood and community groups. Participating high school students can earn credit towards their community involvement hours. Groups will be provided with cleanup kits and following the cleanup, there will be a free appreciation barbecue lunch at Riverside Park.
To register, visit guelph.ca/cleanandgreen<http://guelph.ca/seasonal/cleanandgreen/> between March 21 and April 15. Alternatively, you can register by calling 519-822-1260 extension 3305 or email firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>.
The City of Guelph is grateful for the work of our participants as they help to ensure more enjoyable common spaces for everyone. We look forward to your registration and seeing you on April 23.
