We heard very loudly that one of the big things to focus on in Ward 5 is keeping our neighbourhoods clean. The problem is particularly bad in our alleys, where residents regularly dump trash. In response, we worked with the City to create the Adopt An Alley project. Much like a community clean-up, a large garbage bin is brought to the alley for residents to conveniently take away larger pieces of garbage saving you time and money.
So far, this project has been an incredible success. In our first two events, volunteers filled the bins with 10 tonnes of garbage! We followed that up with another seven tonnes gathered and taken away during the annual Ward 5 clean-up on Neighbour Day, and another five tonnes on June 25. This is an amazing show of passion from our community and I’d like to say a sincere thank you to everyone who came out to chip in!
