Overbrook recently held its Annual Garage Sale and Clean-Up Event on May 9. The clean-up event and garage sale were great examples of how we as a community association have a positive impact on our environment and the beauty of our neighbourhood.
With neighbours donating unwanted items to the community garage sale, we not only benefited the community association through fundraising, but also preventing non-composting materials from ending up in our landfills.
Overbrook's Clean-Up event was also key. Litter is both ugly and bad for the environment , so picking-up litter has both an environmental and a community benefit.
Both these events help remind us that we all have a responsibility to consume resources wisely, including proper disposal of, and recycling of, the items we use in our daily lives.
