It's Marsh Creek Clean-Up Time Again

It's the 7th annual Marsh Creek Clean-Up tomorrow.....volunteers will be provided with gloves and there will be a BBQ and prizes for teams that collect the most garbage.    You should wear boots.

Kate Shannon of Canaport LNG tells CHSJ News they've been able to see what a difference the cleanup makes year to year.

She says the first year they collected over 7 tonnes of garbage and its gone down a lot in the years since and now they collect about 3 tonnes of garbage.

One year, volunteers even found a litter of kittens living in a couch that had been dumped in the creek.

To help with the cleanup, meet up in the white tent behind Parkway Mall at 8:30am for registration and the clean up begins at 9am tomorrow.
