PRESS RELEASE
GREEN ORILLA
*************************
Green Orillia is very excited to invite you to our Spring Community Trash Cleanup Event this Sunday April 24th.

Given that Friday, April 22 is Earth Day and April 22-24 is Yours To Protect weekend (local groups across the province are hosting events to bring attention to environmental issues), this Sunday is the perfect day for a community trash cleanup.

Madeleine Fournier of Green Orillia is able to pick up your full garbage bags during the cleanup and bring them to the dump for free.

This will be Green Orillia’s fourth community trash cleanup event and second annual spring cleanup.

Those who want to participate on Sunday are asked to report to the courtyard of the Orillia Public Library at 10 a.m. Bags will be provided, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own gloves, pickers, and other items needed for cleanup.

Prior to the start of the litter cleanup, a community meeting/discussion will take place, including a group photo and recognition of indigenous lands led by Luana Shirt, a local indigenous knowledge bearer and land/water protector.

All are welcome, and you can RSVP on the Facebook event here: https://fb.me/e/1hLIYbXds

Help us show some love to our city and our environment. Please tell a friend, family member, co-worker or neighbor how they can help protect and preserve our environment.

For those unable to attend, Green Orillia encourages people to clean up trash in their neighborhood when possible and post photos identifying Green Orillia.

Green Orillia is a community organization dedicated to sharing news, events, tips, resources and initiatives for sustainability in Orillia and the region. Follow Green Orillia on Facebook and Instagram, sign up for the e-newsletter here or visit the website.
