Pembroke Cleanup

May 7 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The annual Pembroke community cleanup runs Saturday, May 7 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Volunteers will meet at the Farmers’ Market at the corner of Victoria and Lake Street. They will receive bags and gloves before heading out to pick up garbage in different areas of the city.

Another way to beautify the City is to sponsor a bridge box. Every year, the Committee installs flower boxes on the Pembroke Street and Lake Street Bridges. Sponsorship helps ensure this program continues each year. Boxes are just $50 and a plaque acknowledging the sponsor is included. For more information on sponsorship, please contact Jo-Anne Schutt at 613-735-6821 ext.1510.

Another initiative this year is the adopt-a-park/adopt-a-roadway program. This program encourages residents to be actively involved in the maintenance of a park or street to help keep Pembroke clean and green. This could include doing regular litter pickups or walkthroughs with follow-ups to the City to report any issues or concerns. It is open to any interested community groups or individuals. Anyone interested in adopting an area can contact the Parks & Recreation Department office at 613-735-6821 ext. 1501 or email recreation@pembroke.ca.
