Join the Friends of Island Lake on Saturday, May 12, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and get a head start on your spring cleanup during Scrap Metal Collection Day.  Bring your old lawnmowers, barbeques, aluminum siding, farm implements and other scrap metals to Island Lake Conservation Area.  Charitable tax receipts will be issued for donations worth $50 or more.

All proceeds from donations will go toward the Island Lake Community Trails Campaign to build a wheelchair accessible, walking and cycling trail around the perimeter of Island Lake that will link to existing and future trail networks in Orangeville, Caledon, Dufferin and Mono.

The Friends of Island Lake are a local fundraising committee of the Credit Valley Conservation Foundation. The group formed in 2005 to enhance community involvement and awareness about expanding the current trail system at Island Lake Conservation Area. For more information, visit

Since the group formed, they have raised more than $800,000 in donations (cash and in-kind labour and materials); completed more than seven kilometres of fully accessible trails at Island Lake Conservation Area; and contributed more than 7,500 volunteer hours.  Currently, the Friends are working diligently to raise funds to build three raised boardwalks which will connect the north and south trails.

A barbecue will also be held during Scrap Metal Collection Day, with proceeds going toward the trails campaign. For more information on the Scrap Metal Collection Program, please call:
