Community Associations Lead Community Clean Ups Around Regina
Eight Regina Community Associations will be holding a Community Clean Up pilot program in their neighbourhoods over the course of the summer and fall to help beautify our city.
Kicking off the Community Clean Up program this weekend is Queen City Eastview on June 4. Other participating Community Associations include Heritage, North East, Regent Park, Cathedral Area, Rosemont/Mount Royal, Al Ritchie and North Central with clean-up dates occurring this summer and fall.
Several Community Associations have done smaller community clean ups for many years with their volunteers. This year, the City of Regina is providing a garbage collection truck, fleet trucks and trailers, waste diversion bins and other applicable equipment along with City staff trained to use the equipment to help with the program.
Certain items are not permitted including appliances, furniture, hazardous waste, building materials, tires, barbecues, outdoor equipment or large outdoor items. You can visit Regina.ca/waste to find the Waste Wizard that helps you put your waste in the right place.
In 2021, funding was approved by Council through the budget process for support of a pilot Community Association Clean Up program. A report will be provided to Council at the end of 2022 to share successes and learnings of the program and will determine the future direction.
