Time for annual spring cleanup at Mill Creek


garbage left behind, over the seasons, on the shores and often in the creek itself. They collected 300 pounds of assorted trash that year, for later deposit at the landfill. Last year, 17 people turned out to scour the creek banks, including seven people who drove in fromOttawa to help out. Seve- ral students from one of the high schools, and a mother and her three-year-old child were among the trash collectors cleaning up along the shoreline. The kind of stuff that ends up in the bags varies from hundreds of discarded cigarette butts to a 45-gallon drum container, dum- ped into the creek and sitting there sub- merged until last year, when the water level was low enough to reveal its presence and

allow someone to wade out and retrieve it. “You name it, we find it,” Lafontaine said. “Last year we even picked up a little pup tent.” The annual shoreline cleanup gets sup- port from a couple of local businesses like Home Hardware, which donates some work gloves for trash collectors to wear to protect their hands, and a supply of hot coffee from the Tim Hortons. This year’s Hawkesbury Shoreline Clea- nup is April 30, starting 9 a.m., from the United Church at the corner of Main Street and McGill Street. Volunteers can pick up their garbage bags, gloves, and litter pickup sticks at the starting point. Rendezvous time back at the site is noon, when all the gar-

bage collected is sorted and weighed for the official record. A barbecue for volunteers follows afterwards. Those interested in participating, either as volunteers to collect garbage or as spon- sors to help support the event, can contact Lafontaine at 613-632-9585 or will.jade@

Spring is here, more or less, whichmeans time many start to think about spring clea- ning, either inside the house or outside, around the yard. For some it means time to get ready for theThird Annual Hawkes- bury Shoreline Cleanup. “Our goal is to make sure we keep our rivers clean,” said Louis Lafontaine, one of the original organizers of the annual community environmental effort. The first Hawkesbury Shoreline Cleanup in 2014 saw Lafontaine and two others make their way along Mill Creek, now known as Hawkesbury Creek, tagging and bagging
