Ottawa South Conservatives help take out the trash in Ottawa South

The Ottawa South Conservatives were out in force this afternoon as part of the City of Ottawa’s Cleaning the Capital Campaign. OSCA was pleased to be joined by the Ontario PC candidate for Ottawa South, Matt Young. Together, we’re working to take out the trash in Ottawa South.

OSCA’s volunteers took part in the campaign for the fourth time since 2012 as they swept the area for garbage, debris, and other unsafe material, and also reported any deficiencies on the city’s property to the City of Ottawa. The non-profit association first adopted the 2.5-kilometre stretch of Alta Vista Drive in the summer of 2012, running from Edge Hill Place to Pleasant Park Road.

Participating in local events that really make a difference are an excellent way to give back to the community, contributing to making Ottawa South a cleaner, safer, greener community.

The federal Conservative government is committed to a greener environment on the national level, and we wanted to do our part locally and adopt a small part of Ottawa South to keep clean.

Background
In 2012 OSCA adopted a 2.5 kilometre stretch of Alta Vista Drive, from Edge Hill Place to Pleasant Park Drive. We feel this is an excellent way to give back to our community, contributing to making Ottawa South a cleaner, safer, greener community.

The City of Ottawa holds two “Cleaning the Capital” campaigns each year: once in the fall and once in the spring. Organizations are responsible for cleaning their adopted road or park, which includes trash removal, reporting graffiti and unsafe equipment, planting trees, setting up and painting new furniture, and general maintenance of those areas.
