With the great success encountered last year, volunteers with the support of Lucy Gagnon, Municipal Councillor responsible for the environment, invite you to clean up a section of road shoulder or ditch. You will have eleven days to make a meaningful gesture for the environment. Don’t forget your gloves and bags! To facilitate the roll-out of this event, consult, select your street or suggest a new one and then send an email to the organizing team at After filling a few bags, take a picture of yourself and send it to us before May 3rd at Don’t forget to include your coordinates.
