#ygkChallenge: Post-Melt Clean Up

winter garbageWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Pick up all that trash that Old Man Winter was hiding. We got off easy this year in terms of how much snow we had to deal with – yay! Now that it’s all gone and we can see our lawns, sidewalks and streets, it’s time to do something about all that trash that’s lying around. Get out there with bag or bin and deal with it now before it April showers break down into toxic mush, or blows onto someone else’s (my) lawn. Clean neighbourhoods are more inviting, don’t you think?

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by using the hashtag: #ygkchallenge. As you work towards completing this week’s task, please feel free to lend others a helping hand by providing tips on how you achieved success.

Thanks to Marion P. for supplying this week’s #ygkchallenge, and Merrick Brown for the accompanying photo.
