Community Clean-Up

Pipestone Flyer

    A challenge has been put out to Leduc neighbourhoods after City of Leduc Councillor Beverly Beckett heard about the excellent partnership between a group of Southfork residents and the City’s Public Services Dept.

    Speaking at the City of Leduc’s regular councillor meeting May 12, Melanie Nesimiuk wanted to thank Public Services staff for their support with residents’ plans to clean up their neighbourhood.

    Nesimiuk said a group of neighbours decided there was too much garbage around their neighbourhood following the winter snow melt and decided to do what they could to round up some people and clean it up.

    Not only did the clean-up spruce up the area but it brought people together.

    “The people who came out are people who don’t know each other,” she said. “it was a chance to meet people and make a concrete contribution that made a difference in the community.”

    Public Services staff provided garbage bags, vests and gloves to the residents participating.

    “I’m thrilled and not surprised at how our staff supported this,” said Councillor Dana Smith. “A lot of us live here and love this community so kudos to you for putting something together.

    Beckett agreed saying it is wonderful to see people who want to live in a clean community and do something to make that happening.

    “I would put out a challenge to all neighbourhoods to follow this model,” she said.

    Any neighbourhoods interested in taking up Beckett’s challenge can call Leduc Public Services at 780-980-7133 and they will provide tools and clean-up materials.
