Clean-up days a good thing for community

Residents encouraged to be prepared for waste pickup days, June 3 and 4.

In response to the article in the May 16 Eagle Valley News about the Economic Development Advisory Committee regarding clean-up days throughout our community.

Whether you are going for an evening stroll or walking the dog, whether you are taking a Sunday afternoon drive or cruising on your motorcycle, take time to view people’s carports, side and front yards. Ask yourself if your yard could use a clean-up. Respect your neighbours. They are the ones that view your yard.

If you can not move large, heavy items to the curb, maybe your neighbour’s teenagers would like to earn a buck. Let the community clean-up event get you motivated, folks.

As a tourist resort community, let’s make Sicamous an attraction to all who may visit. Who knows, if they should decide to invest and make our community their home, they could become your neighbour.

Be prepared for the pick-up days, Sunday, June 3 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for large items (fridges, freezers, washers, dryers, water tanks, etc.), and Monday, June 4 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for garden waste in clear plastic bags. No household garbage please. Don’t take advantage of a good thing.
