In Our Opinion: Spring cleaning with Rupert Rubbish Round-up

Congratulations and thank you. To the rest of Rupert, yes ... it is time to pitch in and start cleaning your little part of the world

On Page A13, and our online video, we highlight the altruistic Sarah Dantzer who rounded up the troops and went on a spring cleaning spree recently.

The Northern View is also proud to sponsor Positive Prince Rupert – Civic Pride, another organization made up of volunteers who do amazing work cleaning up our community.

Dantzer and her neighbours are already thinking of big-vision plans such as a building a greenhouse and trail at the end of Overlook Street and she is looking to add to the growing Canada-wide ‘Butt Blitz’ campaign coming up on May 6, 2017, where hundreds of thousands of cigarette butts are collected and recycled (they are not decomposable) through TerraCycle Canada.

To be involved with this and of course, the Third Annual Rupert Rubbish Round-Up next April, contact Dantzer at sarahdantzer89@gmail.com.

Congratulations and thank you to both groups.

To the rest of Prince Rupert, yes … it is time to pitch in and start cleaning your little part of the world.

Sarah and friends can’t do it all.
