Tidy up Trochu . . . 2020

We have had to cancel TIDY UP TROCHU due to COVID-19 regulations but have come up with some alternatives and are asking Trochu residents for help.

For the month of May, the Town Office and the White Public Works Shop on Arena Ave will be setting out garbage bags and displaying a map with all the green spaces (including areas previously covered by Tro-Val students) and if you and your family would like to get outside and help, here’s how;

  • pick up a bag
  • choose a space
  • give us a call and we will mark off your chosen area
  • grab some gloves and enjoy some fresh air
  • leave the bag(s) out on Wednesday with your household garbage or beside one of the town receptacles along the paths
  • please call if you encounter anything you are unable to bag

Also, for anyone that has no way to transport their spring yard refuse or other items to the transfer site, we will have a one day pick up on Monday, May 25.  Please have it piled at the back of your property and call us with your address.
