Time to sweep Brandon clean

The city of Brandon and the Brandon Environment Committee are encouraging all residents, businesses and organizations to pitch in to a "community clean sweep" to help keep Brandon clean and green this summer.

During this year’s campaign, the Brandon Environment Committee is challenging the entire community to either clean up their own property or a property in need of some TLC. It can be a weekly, monthly or a one-time clean-up – it doesn’t matter as long as people show thier pride by tidying up their yard, neighbourhood, or a community location like a boulevard, park or public space.

A series of community clean-up days are already scheduled over the next couple of weeks, including:

  • June 1, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Princess Park (organized by the Marquis Project)
  • June 1, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Stanley Park (organized by the Brandon Environment Committee)
  • June 4, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Riverbank Discovery Centre (organized by Brandon Riverbank Inc.)
  • June 5, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Linden Lanes neighbourhood (organized by Scouts Canada)
  • June 7, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Riverview neighbourhood (organized by neighbourhood residents)

Residents or businesses are encouraged to join in at one of the above volunteer clean-up events — or to organize their own clean-up day.

Businesses and organizations interested in cleaning up large areas can contact the Brandon Environment Committee to receive free garbage bags and gloves and to arrange for garbage bag pick-up. Details are online at

The city of Brandon is also organizing its own clean-up day, in which city staff will volunteer on their lunch hours to pick up garbage and litter in and around their workplaces,. That will be held in July, and the city is challenging all businesses to show the same commitment.
