Waste Free Wednesday

On May 4 30 energetic volunteers came out to pick up litter throughout Wingham. In just two hours teams covered every street in town plus the community trail. A total of 50 bags of garbage was picked up. Each volunteer separated recyclable from non-recyclable waste as they picked up the garbage.
Tim Hortons donated coffee and timbits for the volunteers to enjoy in the train station at the conclusion of the event.
Organizer, Pete Mulvey, said he plans to run the event again in the fall making this a bi-annual event. In the attached photo, note the 2 pictures of a discarded shoe.
