Cornwall Ontario – Carilyne Hébert just finished safety training for the Adopt-a-Street program in Cornwall Ontario. She is ready and equipped to keep her neighbourhood clean.
“(I’m) all ready and equipped to keep my neighbourhood clean,” said City Councillor Carilyne Hébert on social media.
The Adopt-A-Street program is seeking new volunteers. It is a chance to work with the City of Cornwall and other community-minded volunteers to maintain litter-free streets, sidewalks and parks! It’s also an opportunity to meet other people who share a sense of civic pride and are picking up litter in their neighbourhoods!
The Adopt-A-Street program will help beautify Cornwall Ontario. It creates a more positive milieu for citizens, leads to more civic pride, and makes Cornwall more attractive to visitors and potential new businesses.
Adopt-A-Street allows people to get involved and feel proud about their community. And it costs very little. It’s a win-win situation!
The Adopt-A-Street program builds on the 1 Green Cornwall initiative.
What do the volunteers do? They make a commitment to pick up litter on a given public area, once a month or more often, for a minimum of one season, from April 1st to October 1st. They agree to follow the rules set by the City to ensure the safety of all, and they sign a waiver.
What does the City of Cornwall do? They manage the program, provide safety training, and supplies like litter pickers, gloves, and more. They also collect bags from designated drop off points when notified.
