Brockville – The annual Brockville Community-Wide Clean Up was held on Saturday through-out the city’s green spaces.
Everything kicked-off on Friday with the Mayor’s 20 minute Corporate Cleanup Challenge which saw city staffers cleaning up the mini-park behind city hall.
Saturday saw individuals and groups head out in the rain to clean up areas of the city. Members of the Brockville Tunnel Committee, Kinsmen Club and others were at the North end of the railway tunnel cleaning up.
While members of the Rotary Club and other residents were cleaning up Rotary Park in Downtown Brockville.
The Brockville Community Wide Clean-up organizing committee is comprised of volunteer community members and students. Each year, the committee coordinates with City of Brockville staff and with the financial support from environmentally conscious businesses, in an effort make our city clean.
The greatest efforts come directly from local volunteers and neighbours, who pitch-in armed with rakes and garbage bags. Each year this event draws a few hundred volunteers, removing tonnes of garbage and recyclable rubbish from our parks and green spaces.
