Oakville Clean Sweep

The month of April brings so many things; Income Taxes, Easter, Practical Jokes and Earth Day. With Spring weather hopefully just around the corner, it's easier to appreciate the value of caring for our planet and environment. That's why the Town of Oakville encourages the entire community to take part in different events around the town geared towards cleaning up, organizing and beautifying the lovely Town of Oakville. Check out the information below, found at www.Oakville.ca, to see where you and your family can get involved in the various Earth Week events.

Join in on Oakville Clean Sweep, Friday, April 19, or take part in the town-wide Earth Week clean up on Saturday, April 20, 2013.

The Town of Oakville is kicking off Earth Week with our Oakville Clean Sweep, an initiative to encourage all residents to get out and clean up litter around our schools, businesses, homes and public spaces for 20 minutes. When we work together, 20 minutes is all it takes to make a more beautiful Oakville. Get your coworker, fellow students, friends and family to go outside and clean up on Friday, April 19 at 2 p.m. and make a difference in our community.
