13th Annual Clean Up Day
On Friday, April 30th, 2016 a wonderful group of volunteers came together for the Warehouse District’s 13th annual Clean Up Day. In only 4 hours, 3.97 metric tonnes of waste was successfully cleared from businesses, streets, and alleys in the community.
In total, 3 Loraas disposal bins at a length of roughly 30 yards each were emptied into the City of Regina landfill for this year’s spring cleanup event. This was an increase in comparison to the 3.4 tonnes that was taken in from last year’s Clean Up Day.
