Get out your gloves and grubbies and help tidy the place up.

The District of Sicamous is hosting a clean-up weekend on Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10.

District chief administrative officer Evan Parliament says the first 100 people to sign up will receive a free T-shirt.

Volunteers will be asked to help pick up trash from ditches and alongside roads and boulevards and do some needed weed-whacking during the mornings only.

“And we’ll feed you,” adds Parliament, noting that while it would be awesome if volunteers could help out the entire time, every half hour or hour of help will be greatly appreciated.

If you are interested in the community cleanup, contact municipal hall at 250-836-2477.

Curb collection

The district hosts a two-day curbside clean-up event on Monday and Tuesday, April 11 and 12. This is an opportunity to clean up your yard and dispose of unwanted items.

On April 11, between 7 a.m. and noon, the district will be picking up “white” metal goods such as hot water tanks, bath tubs, stoves, washer and dryers. On Tuesday, between 7 and noon, the district will be picking up organic waste, including grass clippings, leaves, prunings and tree limbs up to eight inches in diameter. Organic waste must be in clear bags.
