As winter comes to an end and the snow starts to melt, we start to see something else on the ground. Coffee cups, plastic bags, cigarette butts and other litter have accumulated throughout the winter. A little spring cleaning is needed to freshen up the community and make a difference for the environment!

The Town of Saugeen Shores, in partnership with Eastlink, will be hosting Spring Cleaning Week April 22-29, 2017.

Local schools, individuals, businesses, community organizations and clubs are encouraged to organize a group and register for an outdoor clean-up. The Town will provide gloves and bags for everyone in the group, and will pick up the garbage bags after the cleanup. This year, the first 150 volunteers will also receive t-shirts as a thank you gift for getting involved.

“Whether it’s a group of friends, family or co-workers, many hands will make light work of beautifying our community,” says Lisa Billing, Recreation Supervisor with the Town of Saugeen Shores. “It’s a great opportunity to get outside and make a difference in the community.”
