APPLAUSE: Students buy into litter campaign

To the Editor,

It has been about two months now since I donated a garbage can to the 600 block Bruce Avenue, and things are shaping up.

The 7-Eleven store is donating the bags and dumpster and the students are participating in the Keep Harewood Clean Project.

I get a full can of garbage every week and it just goes to show a little citizen participation goes a long way in helping keep our city clean.

I tip my hat to the students who frequent the University Village shopping mall and use the can – not the boulevard – to dispose of their litter on their breaks from school.

Good for them for keeping up the good work. Together we can show responsibility.
