Declaring war on trash

The call to clean up part of Timmins appeared to be a success today as dozens of residents gave up their Sunday morning to don safety vests and work gloves. The event was the part of the Timmins Get Clean campaign launched a couple of weeks ago by Timmins businessman Rick Cecconi. At the Gillies Lake Conservation Area this morning, Cecconi, outlined his clean up plan from the back of a pickup truck. Cecconi said litter was getting out of hand in Timmins “but today we declare war on trash!” Cecconi and his fellow citizens gathered up hundreds of bags of trash and filled a 30-foot dumpster.
