A request from the HERON PARK COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
Spring is here! Even Covid-19 can’t stop the seasons.
Getting outside in the fresh air is good for us – Going for walks is good for us, so long as we maintain our personal distances. Due to the virus we will not be holding our annual community Clean-Up. But nothing is preventing us, as individuals, to do our part in keeping our environment clean. How about on Saturday, April 11th, from 10-11 a.m. we get out in our front yards – rakes and green bins at hand and clean-up together – but far-a-part?!?! Let’s do it!! If your yard is already a model…why not tackle some of our common areas: parks, pathways, near transit—the dreaded Bank St hill!
Did you know that a neighbourhood that is well cared for helps to keep crime and vandalism down? It’s true.
Please do your part.
· Rake up the leftover leaves, keep lawns trim, and hedges neat.
· Store garbage and recyclables in closed containers to prevent wind, animals and birds from scattering them.
· Respect the garbage and recycling calendar.
· Put out trash and recyclables the evening before pick-up and bring in containers once empty.
· Clean up junk mail! (Clean out mail boxes and keep group mail boxes litter free.)
· When you go for a walk why not take a plastic bag with you and, If you see litter, please pick it up.
If we all pitch-in, our neighbourhood will look and feel well cared for.
Stay active, stay positive, stay healthy! HOPE TO SEE YOU ON APRIL 11th!
