Earth Week 2018

Earth Week

Once again the Municipality of Meaford, in conjunction with a group of volunteers, will be hosting various events around the Municipality during Earth Week.

Please note that the Re-Use Fair component of this annual event has been rescheduled to October 20th, 2018 to correspond with Canada Waste Reduction Week. It is our intention to build this into a standalone annual event with additional Waste Reduction & Diversion-themed components like a winter clothing/equipment drive or swap; textile recycling, and a community waste reduction challenge. The plans are still in the works and more info on the event will be made available Summer 2018, with the 'Wishlist Application Form' expected to be distributed to Community Groups at the end of August. If you'd like to volunteer to be involved with this event, or have ideas you'd like to share, please contact Liz Buckton at lbuckton@meaford.ca
