Saturday, April 22, 2023 Earth Day

Once again the Township of Frontenac Islands and the Howe Island Ratepayers Association (HIRA) are partnering to organize the 2023 Pitch-In Canada event on Howe Island.  We encourage all Howe Island residents to celebrate the start of spring by cleaning up waste from the Island roadsides.

All participants are encouraged to register for this community event by contacting Sue Byrne at 613-542-4869 or email  Upon registering you will be assigned a section of road for waste pick-up. Waste pick up can be done week before or day of Pitch-In weather permitting.

Collected waste may be dropped off at the Township Recycle Depot the morning of the Pitch-In.  Members of HIRA will be at the Township Recycle Depot on April 22 from 8:30 AM until noon to hand out garbage bags and assist in garbage drop-off.

Through the efforts of volunteers, this initiative continues to enhance the natural beauty of our community.

Join us and pitch-in on April 22, 2023 Earth Day
