Time for a reminder to everyone that the Prospect Road Community Clean Up is coming back this May. The cleanup will be May 4th, which is shortly after Earth Day.
Areas organized and covered each year usually include Terence Bay area, Brookside area, McDonald Lake area, Bayview, Sandstone, Prospect area, and the East Dover area. If you live in an area not listed but would like to be included please contact us. As well The Prospect Road Lions Club, Citizen`s on Patrol and the local Scout troop will be cleaning from the start of the Prospect Road into Goodwood and are willing to have volunteers help them with that long stretch of road even if you are not available for the entire time.
Rubber gloves and garbage bags are provided by Clean Nova Scotia and TIR. These can be distributed to groups or individuals ahead of time. Sharp containers and recycle bags are also available.
If you are interested in helping to organize in your community the start time for your group is entirely up to you but most groups start at 9am. If you are looking for a place to clean just let us know. Feel free to share this message with those that you know. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org to assist you in planning action in your community.
As we did last year we are able to have the midday clean up community BBQ at the Prospect Road Community Centre. The BBQ will begin at noon and run for about an hour. A couple of groups have offered to help with this part, thank you to them.
A final note on the pick up of the garbage. TIR (formerly Dept of Highways and DOT) will be removing the trash after the cleanup but they need to know where it is located. Please remember to let us know where the piles are so I can share the locations with TIR.
The Brookside Community Homeowners Association is continuing the theme of clean up the following weekend. Instead of the parks and ditches they are holding a community yard sale at the Prospect Road Community Centre on May 11th for those still looking to their closets and garages. For more information on the yard sale contact Valerie at email@example.com.
Thanks for your continued support of your community.
