Environmental Awareness

River Clean Up Day

August 22nd 9am-12noon

TIA is organizing a community wide River Clean Up on August 22, 2020 and is asking everyone to invest the time to do their corner of the river. We encourage residents and boaters to take 20 minutes and check the shorelines for debris. Pick up any trash, pull out that old tire from the cove, or even just clean up non-garbage items down by the water to prevent them from getting swept down river when the wind and waves pay their next visit.

We will have some passionate volunteers out at the Gananoque Municipal dock ready to help haul recovered items to the local waste facility. While we are not equipped to handle hazardous waste, we will gladly take your general trash and sorted recyclables  right from the dock!

Don’t forget to take a pic of your clean up efforts!! Tag us on social media @thousandislandsassociation and we will share it. After all, good deeds are like smiles…they are contagious.
