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.
