Spring is here and that means spring clean-up in Oshawa.

The City of Oshawa is inviting residents to help celebrate the arrival of spring by participating in the 26th annual Community Clean-up Week.

The Clean-up Week takes place during Earth Week, April 18- 24, and welcomes groups of all sizes who are interested in volunteering to clean up parks, green spaces, trails and schoolyards. Registered participants are provided with free bags and gloves, while supplies last, and will receive a Certificate of Appreciation to acknowledge their contribution to the community.

Community Clean Ups foster community pride, build partnerships and raise awareness regarding clean and safe communities. Volunteers can learn more and obtain the registration form online at www.oshawa.ca/cleanupweek.

Additionally, a collaboration of organizations within downtown Oshawa will be coordinating the Communities with Brooms event, Wednesday, April 20 beginning at 11:30 a.m. The event will bring community volunteers together to spruce up the downtown. Residents can register by emailing [email protected].

For more information and for assistance in choosing a community clean-up area or finding a group, contact the City at 905-438-3146 or visit www.oshawa.ca/cleanupweek. To register for Communities with Brooms, email [email protected].
