Mayor touts success of city-wide community cleanup event

About 90 volunteers showed up on May 15 and filled more than 120 bags of garbage from high-traffic and high-usage areas in Moose Jaw.

The City of Moose Jaw is celebrating a successful Community Cleanup Week, which started May 9 and culminated in a big event on May 15.

Residents, schools, businesses and other community groups took time to collect garbage in their respective neighbourhoods, ending in the #CleanUpMJ event on May 15. About 90 volunteers showed up and filled more than 120 bags of garbage from high-traffic and high-usage areas in Moose Jaw.

“We’re thrilled but not surprised at the high level of participation from Moose Javians who took time to clean up our city,” said Mayor Clive Tolley.

On behalf of city council, the mayor thanked the municipality’s Community Cleanup Committee, the Moose Jaw Co-op, Burns and McDonnell, the Co-op Ethanol Complex, Moose Jaw Bobcat and others who played a role in making the community “notoriously clean.”

“Let’s remember to not litter and keep our city beautiful,” Tolley added.
