Annual Community Clean-Up Campaign Kick-Off
(Monday, April 28/2003)-- Students at Bicentennial School in Dartmouth will assist Mayor Peter Kelly and members of Halifax Regional Council officially kick-off the municipality's annual two-month Community Clean-up Campaign this week.
The event will take place Thursday, May 1st at 10:30 a.m. near the main entrance of the Bicentennial School, intersection of Victoria Road and Thistle Street, in Dartmouth. The campaign runs during the months of May and June each year.
Mayor Kelly, Councillors, and students will pick up litter in the area. The Tim's Horton's Community Cruiser will be on site to provide refreshments.
Last year, more than 50 groups, representing more than 1,500 individuals, participated in HRM's annual clean-up campaign in various areas throughout the municipality. The community clean-up efforts were not confined to the urban areas alone. There was widespread interest in this program throughout the region, which demonstrated the tremendous pride that our citizens have in their community.
Once again this year, citizens or groups who want to participate in the clean-up campaign can register by calling the HRM Corporate Call Centre at 490-4000, by visiting one of HRM's Customer Service Centres, or on-line at the HRM website www.halifax.ca).
Clean-up kits and supplies will be available to participants at HRM Customer Service Centers, starting Monday, May 5th.
(Important Note: Materials such as tires, propane tanks and other hazardous materials are not permitted to be disposed of at the Otter Lake landfill facility. Participants in the Community Clean-Up campaign are urged to ensure these materials are separated from regular refuse collected. HRM Public Works crews will not collect materials that have not been properly separated.)
