Garbologists Report – Booze, Coffee Cups and a Report Card

Jun 7, 2017 @ 08:07   Highway 101 was a total surprise — almost as an afterthought we took it on. People who travel that part of the highway daily thought that it did not look bad. So we started at the turnoff to Hawk and expected a leisurely ‘walk in the park back to Wawa’; after all, it was ...

Garbologist’s Report – ‘Think before you Toss!’

After cleaning Highway 17 south to the Soo, we took a little break from the freezing, merciless wind. I could feel the chill for days.

My thanks to the organizers, Silvana, Melisssa, and friends. All of you saved the Municipality a lot of money in manpower! Now, if only they would bring out the garbage ...

Garbologist Report – Winter is hanging on…

Apr 19, 2017 @ 20:35   Winter is hanging on with new snow blanketing all the trash.   It is Canada’s 150th Birthday this year, so let’s all make an effort to clean our great country and keep it clean. I would like to start in our immediate area as soon as the ditches are dry. Any help is greatly ...
