Clean, Green, Beautiful North Bay issues challenge to the community

Clean, Green, Beautiful North Bay has thrown down the gauntlet.

Created last year, the committee says with over 10,000 people engaged, they are challenging the community to clean up around their yards and businesses.

“Since the beginning of April, we have delivered over 1100 Clean, Green, Beautiful biodegradable bags to enthusiastic citizens,” said committee member Harriet Madigan. “The response has been overwhelmingly positive and it shows that people want to make a difference in their community.”

“With the receding snow, accumulated waste from the winter months is starting to become more visible,” she added. “The most common items that are found are cigarettes, plastic bottles, and coffee cups.”

While the official launch of the Neighbourhood Challenge will come in the first week of May, officials say Cedar Heights and Trout Lake have already registered and are cleaning up their neighbourhoods.

“I joined the Clean, Green, Beautiful project and cleaned up my neighbourhood last year, and I saw a tremendous improvement before the winter,” said City Councillor and committee member, Johanne Brousseau. “This year we are aiming to double the amount of participants so we are inviting everyone to get involved and join the movement.”

For anyone interested in the project, or have bags delivered, contact Clean, Green, Beautiful North Bay at cleangreenbeautifulnb@gmail.com, on Facebook and Instagram, or register on their website.
