The Great Big K-TOWN Clean Up!

*UPDATED*

We are sorry to report that due to rising case numbers in our Province, and in order to keep our community safe, the two events scheduled for this weekend have been cancelled.

If you would like to still help out with litter in Kentville by picking up in your own neighbourhood, we would be happy to help you out with supplies and guidance! Email or call Lindsay for a kit! lyoung@kentville.ca / 902-698-3127

Folks who receive kits and send us photos of their efforts will be sent a thank you in the mail, have their photo shared in our celebration album, and be entered into a draw for KBC Dollars!  

Happening on Saturday April 24th 2021 is the Great Big K-Town Clean up!  Each year over the winter litter collects along roadways, trails, in parks, and well......everywhere.  That's really disappointing, we know.  But it's going to be OK! Because Kentville is jam packed with caring people who like to get outside and lend a hand.  We think that's awesome.  Want to join in the fight against litter?  Meet up with town staff, KBC board members, and fellow community volunteers all working together!  All supplies will be provided including bags and gloves. Give whatever time you have, short or long.  Any and all help is welcomed and appreciated. We will have a great time making new connections while we work, and enjoy a BBQ provided by the Kentville Lions Club at the end. We are fun people, and we hope you will join us!
