BURLINGTON,ON.  April 9, 2013  BurlingtonGreen, this city’s award winning community organization wants this year’s GreenUp Clean Up event to be the best one yet.

The event will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2013. Schools and businesses can participate anytime from April 15 – 20th . This annual city-wide event is a terrific, rewarding opportunity to get out and meet your neighbours, make new friends and make a difference to help the planet locally. We will provide free supplies for your clean up and all participants are invited to attend a Thank You Celebration at City Hall afterwards from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. where there will be a complimentary BBQ and refreshments, a free raffle, various eco-displays and activities for children.

100 lucky volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in a Beachway Park “Green Up” event as part of the April 20, Community Clean Up Green Up day!  Thanks to the Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund, we are working with Conservation Halton and the City of Burlington to acquire native plants to put in the hands of volunteers to improve the coastal habitat of Lake Ontario right here in Burlington.

All schools and groups that register to participate and send in a photo of their clean up “in action” will be entered into a draw for a chance to win great prizes courtesy of Tim Horton’s. After the event, the action photos will be displayed on our popular Green Wall of Fame on the BurlingtonGreen website for all to enjoy.

There are a couple of hoops you have to go through to get yourself or your group registered – but once you get the hang of the BurlingtonGreen website everything you need or want to know is set out there for you: supplies and where you can do the GreenUp-CleanUp.  It is all there in almost exhaustive detail.

The get together at city hall is very close to the best attended citizen’s event in the city – even when it’s raining – people show up.

This event is Burlington at it’s very best – we don’t need any magazine to tell us how good we can be.  See it all at city hall – after you’ve done the Clean up so that the city can Green Up.
