20th Annual Blackburn Hamlet Spring Clean-up

When: Saturday April 30 at 9:30 a.m.

Rain date: Sunday May 1st at 9:30 a.m.

Where: Blackburn Community Hall 190 Glenpark Drive

Along with many other communities of the Ottawa area, the Blackburn Community Association holds an annual Spring Clean-Up.  Please volunteer to help us out; we will assign you a small area of Blackburn for litter pick-up plus provide you with garbage bags and latex gloves. The litter and recyclables can be brought back to the Community Hall.  This event runs on April 30th from 9:30 to 11:30 in the morning. Volunteers are then invited to a BBQ (including vegetarian options) to say thanks for all your ‘dirty’ work.  The Ontario Covid-19 protocols will be in place.

This will be the first community event in Blackburn Hamlet since the Covid pandemic lockdown. This event is for everyone: whether you are new to the community or you’ve lived here for years; if you’re a high school student looking for volunteer hours; if you have children attending school in the area; or if you’re looking to get out for fresh air and sunshine after the snow of this winter has melted!

If you have any questions, contact the BCA Environment Committee at: cleanup@blackburnhamlet.ca.

If you take any photos of the event, please Tweet them (on Twitter) with the hashtag #ThingsArePickingUp or share them to the Blackburn Hamlet Community Association Facebook group for your chance to win a great prize!
