The Meewasin Clean Up Campaign wrapped up Friday, May 19, 2017. Thank you to Loraas Disposal for the donations and maintenance of 12 disposal bins at 6 locations in the valley (Meewasin Park North, The Weir, Meewasin Valley Centre, Rotary Park Parking Lot, Diefenbaker Park, and south of the Meewasin Northeast Swale). Thank you to the City of Saskatoon Parks Department for their support. And a big thank you to all of the public, companies and corporations who volunteered to clean the river valley. Meewasin coordinated the event this year with no lead sponsor and few staff; but with all the volunteer and donated assistance Clean Up Saskatoon had another successful year. Thank you.
For the past 36 years, Meewasin benefited from major corporate sponsorship, however, such was not the case this year. No registration was required and garbage bags were not supplied. The public was asked to bring their own.
It costs Meewasin $20,000 annually to coordinate and supply a Clean Up Campaign, and we are now looking for a sponsor for the spring of 2018. If you or your organization has an interest in sponsoring this publicly supported annual event (30,000 registrants in 2016), please contact Meewasin at 306-665-6887 for more information.
Volunteers from businesses, schools, community assocations, other groups, and individuals generously donated their time and energy every Spring to keep Saskatoon clean, healthy and beautiful!
Saskatoon businesses and employees can choose a clean up time at any time of the year.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at 306-665-6887, or email us.
Have fun with friends and family and enjoy Saskatoon while you are helping our community.
We are all responsible for a clean environment. Do your part and sign up!
Once registered, please come to the Meewasin Valley Interpretive Centre to pick up your clean-up package. This will include garbage bags and information and you will be entered to win some great thank you prizes from local businesses.
