Join the U of T Trash Team's inaugural "Urban Litter Challenge "and help us prevent litter from entering storm drains and potentially reaching Lake Ontario. Teams will wander the neighbourhood surrounding St. George Campus while keeping track of what is collected. Prizes will be awarded during a celebratory lunch at the conclusion of the cleanup. ***Supplies are provided but to help keep waste minimal, please bring a pair of gardening gloves and a reusable water bottle (refill stations will be available)*** The cleanup runs rain or shine, so dress for the weather! See you there.
