As part of efforts throughout Toronto, Riverside joined the over 200,000 folks who came together for the 15th annual city-wide cleanup of public spaces.
Riverside residents, businesses, and volunteers from George Brown College School of ESL teamed up to clean in and around Joel Weeks Park, Carroll St, Thompson St, Davies Ave, Munro St, and Hamilton St. The Ralph Thornton Community Centre also organized a clean up of McClearly Playground and surrounding streets and spaces on Friday afternoon!
We had great support from the City of Toronto, which in partnership with Glad, donated bags and gloves. Besides Paula Fletcher donation of compost at Joel Weeks Park on Sunday, April 27th.
Riverside has been organizing similar annual cleanups for over five years now and it is good to observe that the level of litter in our community at this time of year has been going down year over year – thanks to smaller but very important everyday litter clean up efforts year round.
Thanks to everyone who supported the annual Riverside Clean Up and thanks for your efforts day to day to keep our community beautiful!
