Community clean-up slated for April 27
Okay Drumheller! It’s time to pitch in and show pride in our neighbourhoods at the annual Spring Earth Day Clean-up.
The annual clean-up, organized by Heather Colberg is set to go on Thursday, April 27. While April 22 is Earth Day, organizers have moved the clean up for a week later to allow schools to participate.
Along with making our community cleaner, as it turns out, it’s a Canadian thing to do. In fact, Community Clean-up is number 64 on the ParticipACTION Canada 150 activity Playlist, and the local Canada 150 committee is also encouraging as many residents as possible to take part.
The Clean-up goes from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 27. There will be GFL green bins placed in areas throughout town. Simply grab your gloves, show up at any of the meeting spots, grab a garbage bag and get picking.
Organizers are challenging businesses and community groups to take an hour or two to make Drumheller a cleaner, more beautiful place.
“We want to try and clean-up all the main areas of the valley and of course with more volunteers, the goal would be to clean up all the communities as well,” said Colberg.
Following the clean up from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., GFL is hosting a volunteer appreciation barbecue at the Badlands Community Facility. Come down and meet representative and recharge after all the hard work.
