The Great Cape Breton Clean Up
Message to all participants for Great Cape Breton Clean
Up Over 500 are signed up to take part in Saturday's Clean Up - more are welcome!
Forecast: Sunny and 8 degrees on Saturday.
TIPS: Start your day by wearing bright jacket or sweater. Bring a water bottle. Water is available at the pick up locations.
Limited supplies of bright t-shirts are at some of the larger centres.
Arrive at your location between 9 am -10 am to pick up supplies. (Full location list below)
You may clean up an area of your choosing. Bags and gloves are available. Limited supply of grabber tools are available at some of the larger centres.
If you have any youth in your clean up team, stay away from moving traffic areas.
Do not pick up sharps. Report their location by calling 311.
Leave filled bags curbside in areas where municipal trucks can easily pick them up: NOT along 100-series highways or on-ramps/off-ramps. These areas are not Solid Waste serviced areas. If you have the ability to do so, like a pick-up truck or trailer, you can transport your bags back to your starting location. If you have piled bags in an area not easily visible, call 311 to report the location.
