City and Sustainable Kingston team together to host a community-wide clean-up
October 15, 2019 -
On Oct. 25 and 26, the City and Sustainable Kingston are hosting Pitch-In, Fall Edition. This two-day community wide clean-up happens on the heels of the highly successful spring event.
"Between April 22 and 29, nearly 10,000 residents donated their time to help collect litter at various locations around our city, as part of Pitch-In Canada's annual event. This was a great show of civic involvement and an impressive display of environmentalism," says Kristin Mullin, Executive Director of Sustainable Kingston.
"We are ready for Kingstonians to ‘wow' us again," adds Mullin.
Residents are invited to learn more about the event, bag pick-up and drop-off locations and to register for Pitch-In, Fall Edition on this Sustainable Kingston webpage. Then, on Oct. 25 and 26, get outdoors with friends, co-workers, family or as an individual and pitch in.
"One of the things that stood out to national organizers of Pitch-In Week was the awesome posts being shared on social media by Kingstonians. We hope, once again, people will take to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and share messages to inspire others around our community - and our country," says Mullin
