Earth Day

Earth Day Event

Join us to celebrate Earth Day

The City of Thorold is inviting residents to our Earth Day event on Saturday, April 20 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Thorold Community Arena located on
70 Front Street North in downtown Thorold. This is a free event but we encourage food donations for Community Care.

We have partnered with the Thorold Public Library and Thorold Community Activities Group who have activities planned and invited speakers to present topics related to Earth Day. Vendors will be in attendance marketing their environmentally-friendly products, services and/or educational materials.

Gauld Nurseries has donated 100 three foot saplings which will be given away to the first 100 Thorold residents. (Photo ID will be required). Habitat for Humanity will be present and collecting e-waste. Visitors are invited to bring their e-waste for recycling. Niagara Region will be present at the event selling various collection bins for attendees.

How do I participate at the Community Clean Up?

We are also requesting residents, businesses, schools, and community partners to come out and help clean up litter along sidewalks, parks, and trails in the city. Volunteers will be provided with all the necessary materials including; gloves, garbage bags, and garbage pickers. 

Once volunteers have cleaned an area, they can drop off filled garbage bags at one of the drop off locations which City staff will collect at the end of the event.
