MORE INFO — The plastic bag clean-up on the section of the Sugarloaf Path downhill and downwind of the landfill at Robin Hood Bay will take place this year again with the assistance of the City of St. John’s. We will be cleaning up the – mostly plastic bags – that are trapped in the forest directly alongside the trail. Old clothing, long pants ,long sleeves and work gloves are recommended. Sturdy ankle support boots or hiking boots are required due to the uneven terrain. A hat and insect repellent might be a good idea. If you have protective eye wear please bring it. The ECTA will also have available eye goggles to prevent corneal abrasion. A spring rake can be handy to reach or gather the plastic debris. Bring a bottle of drinking water.

Participants must be age 17 and sign an ECTA waiver
Children 12-16 in the care of a parent or sole caregiver are also welcome

The City provides large bags and bus transportation to steps within the clean up site. If you are coming as part of a group, please car pool to Robin Hood Bay if possible since there is limited parking.

Please pre-register by noon on Thursday, June 9. Registration will be capped to accommodate the bus rental
Pre-register with Shelley Pardy, Waste Diversion Communications Supervisor at Robin Hood Bay, or 576-4510
