STORY AND VIDEO: Highway, trails last on cleaning block

November will be the community’s last chance to help clean up the city in 2016, with the last two civic pride cleanups planned.




November will be the community’s last chance to help clean up the city in 2016, with the last two civic pride cleanups planned.

The first is a highway cleanup on Nov. 13 and the other a cleanup of the trails behind NorthWest Community College (NWCC) and Salvation Army on Nov. 27. Both start at noon.

Chantal Meggison, one of the main organizers behind Positive Prince Rupert, believes cleanups like these are important to the city.

“We love our community, we respect our community and we find that when we remove waste, we are recycling more of the materials, we’re moving the garbage and creating a safer place for children to play. It’s also less of an eyesore,” she said.

It also helps the environment and makes things better for the wildlife.

Meggison said the group always makes sure to reach out to the community to try and get them involved.

“It gives us all purpose in a sense to keep and protect our own community and to respect it.”

More information on these cleanups and other projects can be found on the Positive Prince Rupert – Civic Pride Facebook page.
