Community Clean-Up Week runs April 16 to 22.

Get involved in Community Clean-up Week

Nearly 3,000 people took part last year

Abbotsford residents are encouraged to pick litter up around their workplace, school, community trails and streets during Community Clean-Up Week, from April 16 to 22.

Residents can volunteer their time to help beautify their neighbourhood and do their part for Earth Day.

Last year, 2,926 residents participated in the Community Clean-Up program. They included local residents, community groups, organizations and local schools.

Classes that contributed to beautifying the city were from Centennial Park Elementary, Godson Elementary, Margaret Stenerson Elementary, MEI Middle School, MEI Elementary, Rick Hansen Secondary, Ross Elementary, Sandy Hill Elementary, St. James Elementary, W. J. Mouat Secondary and Yale Secondary.

Visit abbotsford.ca/volunteerapplication by April 10 to get involved and register.

The city will provide supplies, and yellow garbage bags can be placed with your household garbage pick-up.

Extra garbage stickers are not required.
