The ice is thawing and the grass is peaking through the snow, leaving behind a trail of fallen branches and litter trapped beneath the permafrost. It’s that time of year again – spring cleaning. Which means it’s time for Operation Brightside to begin Project Blitz.
Instead of dropping bombs, Project Blitz aims to drop bulbs, or at least plant flowers, along with a block by block cleanup of our neighborhoods. This annual cleanup of city streets, and collection of our homes’ recyclable appliances (among other things), is coming to a neighborhood near you starting on Saturdays between March 29th and May 17th – check their website for details. It might be easy being green, but sometimes the best place to start is by rolling up you sleaves and cleaning up your neighborhood.
You can learn more about the purpose of this spring cleaning blitz on their website, or in the post we wrote about last year’s Blitz.
