Latest Jewel 99.3 Local News Headlines, April 17th

Get involved, and help keep Collingwood clean, by taking part in the 6th annual Collingwood Community Clean-Up Day today (Wednesday, April 17th) of neighbourhood parks, trails, roads, schools, and public places. Assemble a clean-up crew, identify an area that needs a quick tidy, and register your site at to receive supplies and garbage removal support. If you don’t have a site in mind for your group, you can join members of Council and Town staff at Harbourview Park (behind McDonald’s) at 1:00 p.m. to help clean up the park. If you can’t make it out today,, clean-up initiatives are encouraged throughout Earth Week, and municipal staff will provide garbage removal services for all registered clean-ups. Whatever public space you choose to tidy, join the #TrashTag challenge with a before and after photo of your site. For more information, contact Adam Ferguson, Town of Collingwood Communications Officer at 705-445-1030 ext 3293 (
