Pitch in to take out the trash in View Royal

Municipality taking part in annual beautification event

The Town of View Royal is participating in Pitch-in Week next month and is looking for residents to join in.

Pitch-in Week happens April 16 to 23 and is a good time for spring cleaning your neighbourhood, parks and streets.

The Town hosts a kick-off campaign on Saturday, April 16, with a 20-minute makeover.

Residents are asked to register as individuals or organize a group to do a 20-minute tidy.

Garbage bags and latex gloves will be provided in advance and once your area is clean, full bags can be brought for disposal to the parking lot at Centennial Park, 150 Helmcken Rd., between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

While you’re at the park, stay for a free hot dog and drink to enjoy with your neighbours before picking up a free sapling to plant at your house.

Register before April 6 by sending your name, phone number, address and group name (if applicable) to info@viewroyal.ca or by calling 250-479-6800.
