The roadside cleanup is an annual effort each spring where the County provides local, non-profit organizations the opportunity to raise funds by cleaning up the roadsides, ditches, and hamlets across the municipality. Last year 32 groups cleared 285 km of County roads, collecting $53,215 to support their organizations.
