April Is Pitch-In Month in Mississippi Mills

April showers may bring out Spring flowers, but they also reveal months of accumulated litter.

Now that the snow has finally almost disappeared, all manner of nasties are emerging. Please take the time to get out there and help clean up our community.

This year, Pitch-In officially runs from April 17 to April 30. So grab your shovels, brooms, bags, and rakes, pick your spot and pitch in—whether it’s your street, your neighbourhood, a park, the roadsides, or commercial areas.

Pitch-In bags can be picked up at the following locations:

  • Baker Bob’s
  • Almonte Old Town Hall (Recreation & Culture Office – 2nd Floor)
  • Mississippi Mills Municipal Offices (3131 Old Perth Road)
  • Appleton mailboxes
  • Clayton General Store
  • Nicholson's Sundries
  • Pakenham 1840s General Store
  • Blakeney Community Board/Lending Library

Official Pitch-In bags can be left out with your regular garbage collection without a sticker anytime between April 17 and May 6.

We are privileged to live in this beautiful heritage community, but it takes many volunteers to make it the best it can be.
