Abbotsford – Abbotsford residents are encouraged to pick litter up around their workplace, school, community trails and streets during Community Clean-Up Week from April 17-23, 2017. Residents can volunteer their time to help beautify their neighbourhood and do their part for Earth Day.
In 2016, 1041 residents participated in the Community Clean-Up program. These participants included local residents, community groups, organizations and local schools. Classes from Abbotsford Middle School, Centennial Park Elementary School, Godson Elementary School, Rick Hansen Secondary School, Sandy Hill Elementary School and Yale Secondary School contributed to beautifying their city.
This initiative provides teachers with a great way to provide classes with hands-on, real world learning opportunities for students. Participating classes will have their names entered into a draw for a gift card, courtesy of the Teachers’ Learning Store.
The City of Abbotsford would like to challenge residents to get involved in Community Clean-up Week.

1. Register at www.abbotsford.ca/volunteerapplication by April 10, 2017.
2. Pick-up supplies.
3. Yellow garbage bags can be placed with your household garbage pick-up. Extra garbage stickers are not required.
