As part of the City of Mississaugas annual Earth Days campaign, Mississauga is once again
joining municipalities in the Greater Toronto Area to participate in the 20-Minute Makeover on
Friday, April 15 at 2 p.m.
As a city, we value our shared responsibility to keep our communities clean and
litter-free, said Mayor Hazel McCallion. By promoting a green culture, we can
contribute to a legacy of a sustainable and beautiful environment.
In 2010, over 8,000 residents, schools and employees from local
businesses came together to participate in the event to help keep our City clean and
green, said Ward 11 Councillor and Environmental Advisory Committee Chair, George
Carlson. If everyone takes just 20 minutes out of their day this Friday, we can
make a huge difference in cleaning up our city.
