Homeowners, students, the Niagara College Student Administrative Council and members of NOTL town council pitched in last Saturday to clean up the Niagara on the Green neighbourhood.

They collected about 20 bags of garbage and debris, said resident Steve Hardaker, who helped organize the blitz with Lianne Gagnon, the college’s director of student services, and the student council. 

Lord Mayor Betty Disero offered some words of encouragement before volunteers set off across the neighbourhood. 

Every street in the area as well as Glendale Avenue and Taylor Road were cleaned. 

The town donated the garbage bags, gloves and picked up the trash afterward.
