We have further pandemic guidance in respect of the Crescent Heights Community Clean-up on Sunday, June 20 (09:00 to 1:00 pm). As noted in last month’s View, the 2021 event will look and feel different from past years’ events due to Covid-19 and the continuing need to exercise care and distance. If you can volunteer for the clean-up we can certainly use your help.
We have arranged with Navajo Metals and our friends at Technotrash to be able to take metals and electronics as we have in past years. The Women in Need Society will also be on hand to accept gently-used small household items; please visit their website https://www.winsyyc.ca/donate-goods to see the kinds of goods that are most needed.
- Masks and Gloves are required, as is two metres of social distancing at all times, to which we are all accustomed by now;
- The FREE Store, or swap meet, or take and leave tables, will not be in operation under the current guidance. We can reinstate this popular aspect of the clean-up next year when Covid is behind us;
- We will provide hand sanitizing products and encourage all visitors to use them or bring their own;
- Some residents near the site walk up to bring their materials; if you are a walk-up, please join the vehicle queue and don’t jump your turn; an orderly and suitably distanced flow of visitors is essential to a safe event.
