Spring Cleaning in Stittsville

It’s spring cleaning time so when better to help contribute to keeping Stittsville clean?!

Spring Dog Park Cleanup

On April 21st from 9:00-10:00 AM, the Responsible Dog Owners of Canada (RDOC) will join forces with Kathleen Edwards, owner of Quitters Coffee Shop, to host the Spring Dog Park Cleanup behind Holy Spirit Parish at Shea Woods (Stittsville’s unofficial dog park)

RDOC will supply the cleanup supplies and Kathleen has offered to donate coffee, hot chocolate and pastries for those who come out to help.

Along with RDOC, I would like to thank Holy Spirit Parish for allowing dog owners to use their Parking Lot so they can safely walk their pets. If you enjoy using this area to walk your dog, please note that the Church would appreciate if dog owners would park in the far North East corner of the parking lot (closer to the Trans-Canada Trail).

 Cleaning the Capital – Early Bird Registration Now Open!

Then, be sure to register for the Glad Cleaning the Capital campaign before the early bird deadline is over for a chance to win prizes.

 

Now in its 25th year, this bi-annual city-wide cleaning campaign brings together neighbours, communities and friends to help keep Ottawa clean and green! Last year alone, 75,547 volunteers collected 60,437 kg of litter during 1,259 cleanup events.

This is a great opportunity for families and friends to work together on community cleanup projects that help make Ottawa clean, green, graffiti-free and litter-free. GLAD Cleaning the Capital is also an excellent way for high school students to earn their community volunteer hours.

 

To participate, simply:

  • Pick your project site, your cleanup date (rain date too!), and time.
  • Promote your project and gather your project team.
  • Be sure to plan ahead for the proper disposal of compost, garbage, recycling, leaf-and-yard waste and any other hazardous items you may collect.

 

The campaign begins April 15th. To learn more or to register, please visit https://ottawa.ca/en/residents/water-and-environment/green-living/glad-cleaning-capital

Help to Keep our Neighbourhoods Clean

 

I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage residents to do their very best in ensuring Stittsville remains as clean and beautiful as possible for all neighbours to enjoy. Please remember to pick up after your dogs and move any personal belongings/sports equipment off of roads and public spaces when you are done using them.

Together, we can keep Stittsville a beautiful community for everyone! Thank you.
