The County has facilitated several large-scale community cleanup drives across communities including Rochfort Bridge, Greencourt and Sangudo. These initiatives gave residents in these communities the opportunity to have yard waste, unsightly materials and unwanted items removed from their properties at no cost. Some items (like derelict vehicles) required the use of heavy equipment.

Throughout the campaign (dubbed Red Ribbon Commulity Cleanups), Residents of these hamlets were encouraged to tie a red ribbon to a visible spot on their property as a signal that they wished their yards to be included. The County provided labour resources, dump bins and skid steers, spending about a week in each community. Cleanup crews entered participating yards (residences were off limits) and removed unwanted objects and materials.

The intended (and realized) outcomes of these drives included improved safety, increased attraction to newcomers, and enhanced purpose, functionality and cleanliness.

The County provided the following services and resources free of charge to participating residents:

  • Dump bins
  • Manpower
  • Skid steers
  • Removal of vehicles and other large items

During the 2021 Red Ribbon campaign, County crews removed more than 50,000 kilograms (50 tonnes) of yard waste from the hamlets of Greencourt and Sangudo. Included in the haul were more that a thousand tires!

The County thanks the landowners who participated in this impactful community cleanup initiative.
