Fundraise by cleaning up County roadways

The County’s annual roadside clean-up takes place from May 3-19 this year, but local non-profit groups interested in taking part have only until March 21st to sign up.

The program sees selected groups earn $150 for every kilometre of County roadway that they pickup garbage from.

The County assigns areas to the groups, as well as safety vests, gloves, trash bags, and safety signs.

The groups are then responsible for making sure they have enough volunteers, as well as other items like transportation and insurance.

Last year, 19 groups shared $16,000 by cleaning up around 160 kilometres of roadsides and ditches.

A total of eight tonnes of garbage was collected through the program last year.

Application forms are at the County Public works office in Clairmont, or on their website.
