As part of the City’s spring cleanup activities, Capital City Clean Up encourages Edmonton residents to spend 15 minutes picking up litter or reporting graffiti by calling 311.
During the 2013 launch, 30 students from the social justice group at St. Pius X braved the weather to pick up litter around Woodcroft Library. Throughout the challenge week, Edmonton residents picked up thousands of cleanup kits from Edmonton Public Libraries.
Congratulations to Lorne Rebalkin and Nicole Belu, who each won a tablet computer. Their names were drawn from more than 300 individuals who filled out the online survey on behalf of themselves or their groups.
Here’s what one survey respondent said:
My 4-year-old was on official garbage-spotting duty while I filled the bag, tot in tow. We focused our efforts on the free space behind our home where we love to play.
You can still take the 15 to Clean Challenge throughout the summer months. Pick a quarter hour and ask your family, friends, co-workers, classmates or others to help create a clean, safe, livable city.
Proud Partners of the 15 to Clean Challenge
