The city of Regina has started spring cleaning – and the job is much bigger than you might think.
City crews are faced with a winter’s worth of garbage on the streets and parks – and usually the city has to shell out about 200-thousand dollars each year to clean it up.
Ray Morgan is the Director of Parks and Open Space with the City of Regina.
He is urging motorists to watch out for clean-up crews who will be visible on major routes.
Morgan says people can help curb the amount of garbage by securing and tarping their loads as well as picking up trash in parks open spaces and throwing it away.
Morgan says Regina has an ‘Adopt-a-Greenspace program‘ too where residents can take some ownership over a small piece of land.
