Most people are committed to keeping the area around their homes looking great and free of litter. “PITCH-IN RIDEAU LAKES” is an annual program that gives us a chance to join together, expand our areas and set an example to others that we truly care about the beauty and safety of our environment. With over 600 Kilometers of public roads in our Township, we need you! Think of the cumulative effort if every resident picks up one bag of garbage! Invite your friends, family members, neighbours, groups/clubs and organize a day of “pitch-in” in Rideau Lakes. A huge thank you to all the volunteers who pitch-in every year!
Participate in Rideau Lakes PITCH-IN Week every April and keep your Township looking great. PITCH-IN bags are free to volunteers and can be obtained at the Township Office and Libraries. Pick up roadside litter, place it in a PITCH-IN bag and set it out for free collection on your regular day (no bag tag required). Only pitch-in litter will be picked up, do not put your household waste in the yellow bag.
Rideau Lakes introduced the PITCH-IN program in 2000, and from there it has grown into an annual event, township-wide!
