Support for community clean-up initiativesSupport for community clean-up initiatives<div class="ExternalClassDC3F9AB2BB3A44B6856B90D290F3546C"><p>Do you know of some great community clean-up activities in your neighbourhood? Non-profit and volunteer groups doing community clean-ups can now apply to drop off garbage at no cost at Metro Vancouver transfer stations. This initiative encourages the work of volunteer groups who donate their time to help beautify and protect public parks and streets in our region. </p><p>Any clean-up project within a Metro Vancouver municipality is eligible, as long as it is conducted by volunteers on behalf of a non-profit society or volunteer community group. Examples include collection of garbage from publicly owned land such as parks, playgrounds, roads, marine shorelines, lakes and rivers. </p><p>This initiative is for garbage only. Recyclable materials should be separated for recycling. It also does not include invasive plant removal initiatives. </p><p>The application form will be posted soon at <a href="/" target="_blank"> metrovancouver.org</a></p></div>http://www.metrovancouver.org/metroupdate/PublishingImages/issue52-waivedfees.jpg2017-01-26T08:00:00ZGP0|#59156931-d501-4376-b60c-94cddcdcafc8;L0|#059156931-d501-4376-b60c-94cddcdcafc8|Issue 28;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClassEF9C081F695A4BF28E477B95F51C1478"><p>‚ÄčThis is a great initiative to support community groups that work hard to clean up their local environment.
