Pitch-In Smiths Falls
April 20 - May 5, 2013
Join other Smiths Falls resident in this annual community-wide litter cleanup. We'll supply the bags and coordinate locations. We just ask that you let us know how many people participated and how much garbage and/or recyclables were collected.

Don't have anyone to work with and feel conspicuous picking up garbage out there in public all by yourself? Meet us at the corner of Ferrara and Ferguson on Saturday April 20, from 9:00 11:30, and we'll do it together! We'll bring the bags.
2012 Participants Who Reported Back:
Some of the junk collected by SFDCI students in 2009.
Pitch-in Smiths Falls is a community wide litter cleanup coordinated by REAL. Public and highly visible sites, such as parks, and road allowances, are identified by REAL and groups or individuals assigned to clean that site. Garbage bags, other supplies and safety instructions are provided. REAL records the number of participants and the number of bags of recyclable and other garbage collected for comparison from year to year.
REAL is working with the Town of Smiths Falls and others to find other measures that will reduce our litter problem.
2012 marks the eleventh year for this community wide effort, although REAL has participated in spring cleanups and encouraged other residents to do so since 1989 through Pitch-in Canada, a national organization founded in British Columbia.
