Compost and Clean Ups

"In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt."  Margaret Atwood

Over the next few weeks, Ward 30 is host to a number of clean up events.  These events are a terrific way to connect with your neighbours and help beautify the communities we love.  Check below for information on your local clean up date and location.   If you know of any other clean up events in the neighbourhood, please email [email protected] to be added to the list.

Councillor Fletcher has also arranged for compost to be dropped off at several parks this season.  Read the following listings for information on when free compost will be available at Withrow Park, Monarch Park, and Greenwood Park.
