It’s called The Great Nova Scotia Pick Me Up
program, made possible through Clean Nova Scotia (clean.ns.ca/pmu)
. It supplies the public with materials used to pick up litter in public areas. Shoptalk was notified by industrious reader Therese Bombardier
, who in early May, with the help of a group of friends, cleaned up a big chunk of Windsor Street. Propeller Brewery
supplied the beverages and Video Difference
a prize, and in four hours they collected 10 bags of garbage and 2 bags of recyclables. “We noticed that cigarette butts were the most common litter and we picked up over 4000 butts,” Bombardier writes in an email.
