*** Not to be confused with the Community Clean-Up event ***

Saturday May 11th the Silver Springs Community Association is organizing a litter clean up from 10 to 12pm. This will be a great opportunity to make the places we love garbage free and to get to know more neighbours. Snacks and refreshments will be provided after the event.

We will be picking up litter within the community but also in nearby Bowmont Park which we all enjoy! We have divided the community in 8 different sections (see map). Note that each group will be meeting at different locations as shown below.  Make sure you show up at the right place!

1. The Boulevard

2. Silver View – Silver Dale – (Including Dog Coral)

3. SSCA – Waterfall Valley

4. Silver Hill – Silver Ridge – Fournier Area

5. Silver Valley – Ravine Area

6. Silver Creek

7. Silver Grove

8. Silver Brook -Botanical Gardens

Volunteer Needs

We will have 8 team leads to direct a group of volunteers in each area. Don’t worry, we will equip you with a detailed map and set of instructions!

For each area we would like to have about 10 volunteers. This event is open to all ages and can be a great family activity. If you come as a family just put the adult’s name and make a note that you will have kids with you.

In addition there are two volunteer groups to lead the off-leash zone clean up (Area 2 and 8).

Meeting Place

The different groups will be meeting at a location within the area they will oversee. Make sure you show up at the location indicated.

What to bring?

We will provide gloves and garbage bags. But if you have reusable gloves that can be used, bring them along. One less pair of latex gloves in the landfill! Make sure you have good footwear and dress up for the weather.

This is a Community Effort

Did you know that all 3 elementary schools will help with this event by cleaning their yards ahead of our May 7th cleanup! Thank you to Silver Springs Elementary, St Sylvester and WO Mitchell! Also LDS and St Peters churches will participate by cleaning their grounds. Everyone can do their part by cleaning up around their house including the back alley.
