Meet Bill. He cleans up litter. Be like Bill.
Long-time Bramptonian Bill started his cleanup journey more than three years ago when he noticed garbage in a nearby ravine. He started cleaning the ravine litter – some that had been around for decades – and then expanded his efforts to other nearby areas.
Soon after, he created a volunteer group called P.A.L. (People Against Littering). Each week, more than 10 volunteers gather to cleanup garbage in local parks and spaces. “Our goal is to unite the community into a powerful force to take back control of our parks and streets from litter bugs and litter thugs,” says Bill.
So, what keeps Bill going? “The feeling is almost addictive,” he says. “It is also a thrill to see others smiling and enjoying areas that we have cleaned up and to be appreciated by them.”
Bill has a message for all Bramptonians: “Folks, pick the litter up! If we all picked up just five pieces of litter a week, that would have a major impact.”
Be like Bill and do your part to keep Brampton clean and green.
