Georgian Meadows Clean up (Posted On: Thursday, April 24, 2008)

Neighbours and builders joined forces to celebrate Tuesday’s Earth Day by donning gloves and bringing plenty of garbage bags as they combed the trails, streams and woods to collect a winter’s worth of debris adjacent to Collingwood’s Georgian Meadows development.

About 15 people collected construction materials, garbage and assorted items found on the Ash Creek Trails running from Mountain Road all the way to Sixth Street. A bobcat and truck assisted workers as they bagged non-recyclables and loaded salvageable items.

Among the “treasures” found was a shopping cart, a socket set, old tires, plenty of Styrofoam insulation, plastic bags, a chair and plenty of empty food containers.

Reid’s Heritage Group and Sherwood Homes Ltd. employees gladly took time from their busy days to join Georgian Meadows neighbours to tidy up the trails and environment for the many deer and resident muskrat, grey heron, ducks and other wildlife that are regularly seen in the area.

The crew consisted of  Stacey Thomas, Randy Johnson, Moe Patentenaude, Terry Kloepfer – Regional Manager, Bruno Dipoce, Andy McCallum, Al Schmitt (landscaper contractor) Peter Koning, Mike Dalton, Donna Marinacci, Lucy Kloepfer and Trevor Percy.

Georgian Meadows neighbours hope this will be an annual event as the trails around the area become more frequented and people begin to choose active transportation more regularly.
