Note: While doing your Spring and/or Harvest Cleaning, another great way to recycle is to drop off your unwanted or outgrown clothes to one of the conveniently located Canadian Diabetes Association Drop off bins at the following Community Centres:

If you have any unwanted household items, please call (1-800-505-5525) or visit the Canadian Diabetes Association online. They will pick up your items or you can drop them off at “Value Village” and mention that this is a donation for the CDA and proceeds of the sales will go to them (which will save your items from ending up in a landfill).

Steps to become a volunteer
This service endeavours to connect youth volunteers with senior residents to remove the snow and ice from Brampton’s neighbourhood sidewalks, thereby helping to ensure compliance with City By-law 242-76 (“The City of Brampton requires property owners and occupants to remove snow, ice and slush from their sidewalks by 11 a.m. the day after a snowfall”). The success of the program is dependent upon securing sufficient volunteers to perform the snow clearing service for the Seniors who have registered. Youth will also gain volunteer hours that go towards their mandatory High School requirement of 40 hours.
It doesn’t just have to be “Teens” assisting…if you have an elderly or disabled neighbour that requires assistance, why not just be a friendly neighbour and help them out!
The saying “It takes a Village to raise a child” is true. Connect with neighbours, groups, community Police Stations, Community Centres, Schools, Churches and Community Health Centres. Start an initiative in your neighbourhood and get everyone involved. Make memories of your projects by taking pictures and sharing your good news stories.
Building stronger communities involves relating to people of different cultures, religions and Languages and disabilities. Bring together people from all walks of life for strong partnerships.
