Clean-up events

There are many clean-ups planned over the next few weeks.

In Weston:

On Saturday, April 23, 2022, 12 Division will be hosting their Earth Day Clean Up and is seeking as many volunteers as possible as it will cover several areas in Mount Dennis and Weston. The event is a community cleanup with several of the local organizations and groups some of which include TTC, Frontlines, Weston Community Hub, Agile Martial arts, Weston BIA, Weston/King Family Centre, etc. All those interested are told to meet at the FreshCo parking lot located at 55 Denison Road East at 9:00 am. There will be a free BBQ at the FreshCo at 12:00 pm, ending the event at 2:00 pm. For more information, please contact Barbara Spyropoulos at [email protected].Weston BIA Tune Up On The Trail Event

On April 30, a number of community groups have organized another cleanup. Click the image to sign up.

In Mount Dennis, the MDCA has organized on one for every Saturday in April. Two remain.

April 23 – (Earth Day) we start at Astoria and Lambton. Some people go east and work along the entire Astoria park edges; others go west to Jane Street, and clean up along the edges of Jane down to where the chain-link fence begins. And after, we will join the BBQ!
April 30 – Our final clean-up is usually close to the main entrance of the south-east Flats park. The steep little hillside beside the main entrance collects LOTS of litter, and we will also clean along the Eglinton edge all the way to the top of the hill.12 Division Earth Day Clean Up
