About the Roadside Clean-up Program
The Roadside Clean-up Program is an annual program that allows non-profit community groups to earn money by picking litter along County roadways and within hamlets. In 2016, because of the efforts from 29 community groups, over 200 km of ditches along our County roadways and hamlet areas were cleaned, 12 tonnes of litter was collected, and a total of $35,000 was raised for their programs.
Applications forms are available to complete and submit in March of each year with the cleanup taking place in the month of May.
