Time for clean sweep in Brandon

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

During this year’s campaign, the 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 cleanup — it doesn’t matter as long as people show their civic pride by tidying up their yard, neighbourhood, or a community location such as a boulevard, park or public space.

A series of community cleanup 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 one of the above volunteer cleanup events — or to organize their own cleanup 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 pickup. Details are available online at brandonenvironment.ca.

The city is also organizing its own cleanup 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.
