On April 25 Appleby cleans up
Burlington’s best kept secret is the Appleby Line area since it’s so beautiful and clean. To keep it that way, Burlington Green and the City of Burlington have arranged a community clean-up event on Sat. April 25 from 9 a.m. to noon.
Last year, 12,404 people participated in the event picking up 2,600 kg of waste. A lot of it was either recycled or composted.
If you would like to meet your neighbors and help keep our area beautiful why not sign up? After the event at City Hall there’s a free BBQ with refreshments, and a chance to win some awesome prizes courtesy of Tim Hortons, Turtle Jacks and RONA.
All you need to bring is work gloves and bottled water. Some of the many organized events near Appleby Line include:
