FPRW thanks all Litter Warriors that help to make our community clean. We really appreciate your help, keep up the good work!

If you choose to do your part to help keep our East End clean of litter, FPRW says that is great. Remember to stay only with people you live with when outside or by yourself when doing a cleanup. It is exercise for sure picking up and collecting litter. Rake, rake, pick up, pick up, carry bags, carry bags and a few steps between. FPRW appreciates everyone’s help. Need bags or gloves send a text to 705-363-0166 with your address information and you will receive a social distancing drop off. Thanks again to all our Litter Warriors.

Check back often for our growing list of Litter Warriors and areas they have cleaned.

Bertha Shaw School Ground – April 18, 2021

Van and Gunner Mondor want to thank the kids who cleaned up  for them as that is where they go to school.. these young boys (6&7) also commented “some people don’t care about litter or walk by the garbage, but good thing there are people that clean the litter” Kids are listening and watching. These boys often do their part with their parents.

Halt Grandchildren assisted in cleaning litter

The Halt Grandchildren assisted in cleaning litter at RMSS today and filled 3 grocery bags. thank you so much and FPRW will enter you names in our random Litter Warrior Draw taking place in July 2021. Good job done by all.

Thank you

Marie-Eve Proulx and Gabriel for a clean up of this area today. You will also be entered into the Litter Warrior campaign. Great work!
Hopefully after we come back for the soggy blankets, this area will not be known as “the junk clearing”, but just “the clearing” during our walks on the Bart Thompson trail.
Gabriel’s observations: “I like doing this, in a way, but I don’t like that we have to do it. I like helping the environment, but people should know better “. Out of the mouths of babes.

Friday 04-16-2021, Clean Up News

Thank you to the Clark Family. Christopher, Beth, Declan and Brecken for picking up litter at the Barn Parking Lot, South Porcupine YMCA Soccer Fields and the North Section of Bruce Ave. from the old Ambulance Station to the Anglican Church area. ” Masks, masks, and more masks. Brecken found a machete too. Not even the weirdest thing found which is crazy.” You are true Litter Warriors. Your names will be entered into our July FPRW Draw. So appreciated by all.

Thank you Gabriel

Gabriel never wants his picture on Facebook, but he wanted this posted.
The OPP trail is a bit cleaner than it was. Also, if you’re going to decorate a trail for the holidays, maybe make sure to un-decorate it afterwards. Glitter and styrofoam do not belong there. We didn’t touch poop bags, for lack of PPE. That’s a project for another day.

2021-04-13 – Thank you Litter Warriors

5 youths took it upon themselves to help clean up the Bertha Shaw School Ground yesterday. We have 5 more Litter Warriors for our 2021 Challenge. Great job and so appreciated picking up the trash and filling up a garbage can. If you know and see these kids in your neighborhood, please thank them.
Carter Lefevbre, Bryce Morin, Alex Guenette, Austin Olaveson and Callum Torresan.
