The Sioux Lookout Chamber of Commerce is encouraging people to clean up around town this spring through their Take Pride Community Wide Competition.
Running from April 25 to May 8, people can pick up gloves and garbage bags in the bin outside the front doors at the Travel Information Centre.
To take part in the competition, participants are asked to take a photo of themselves with all the bags of garbage they’ve collected outside of the Travel Information Centre and post it on the Chamber’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/SLChamber807.
Most garbage bags collected will win $500 in local gift cards.
The Chamber stresses that provincial social and physical distancing practices apply to the competition.
As of the end of the day on May 26, 31 bags of garbage had been collected from around the community.
