WEYBURN – From May 10-14, Weyburn residents, organizations and businesses are encouraged to help clean and improve their community during the City’s first annual weeklong cleanup campaign.
Wey-Clean Week was inspired by the City’s Environmental Resources Committee, with a purpose to encourage simple actions by Weyburn residents to tackle litter and properly dispose of waste to make the community a safer and more attractive place to live, play and work.
Due to COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions, this year’s campaign encourages small group participation in neighbourhoods. The City is highlighting different neighbourhoods each day of the week, using its garbage collection areas (visit www.weyburn.ca/refuse-collection for area map):
- May 10 – City crews focusing city-wide
- May 11 – Area 1
- May 12 – Area 2
- May 13 – Area 3, 4 & 5
- May 14 – Downtown
The City encourages small groups of immediate family households, coworkers, recreation teams, school classes, etc., to tour the streets in an area of their choosing and pickup litter.
There are public garbage cans located in all city-owned parks. GFL will also be setting up temporary roll off bins in each area to dispose of the garbage you collect.
Tag us on social media @cityofweyburn and #weycleanweek to show your community pride! Details on how you can enter your name for a City of Weyburn prize pack can be found here.
If a local organization or business is interested in participating as a small group, please contact the City Engineering department for more details at (306) 848-3221. Pickup at City Hall of garbage bags and gloves can be arranged by contacting the Engineering department.
