CORNWALL – Scores of residents will take to the streets Saturday to rid of the city of unsightly litter.

The city’s annual Spring Cleanup Week kicks off Saturday at 9 a.m. in the municipal parking lot on Montreal Road, next to the east-end police station

To date, at least 17 teams are taking part in the week-long event.

Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy says it reminds us of the community pride that exists in the Seaway City.

The Saturday event will see garbage bags and gloves supplied and a barbecue lunch is being put on for participants by the Kinsmen Club of Cornwall.

Temporary garbage bins are also being placed at six different locations for residents and businesses to get rid of their litter.

The locations are: George Assaly Lane, Eco Garden on Race Street, Porter’s Restoration parking lot on Marlborough Street South, the municipal parking lot next to the police station on Montreal Road and the Fines Home Hardware parking lot at Pitt and Thirteenth Streets.
