Courtesy of the City of Quesnel:
The City of Quesnel has partnered with the Quesnel Downtown Association, West Quesnel Business Association, South Quesnel Business Association, Northern Health, Quesnel Clean Team and School District 28 to host the 1st annual Community Clean-up. On Friday, May 4, students will be kicking the event off by picking up garbage around their school yards. Residents are encouraged to volunteer on Saturday, May 5 and help clean-up our community. Volunteers will move throughout public areas picking up garbage. The clean-up runs from 10 am to 4 pm.
Volunteers can meet at any of the following locations:
Spirit Square (downtown)
Baker Creek Park (West Quesnel)
Staples (South Quesnel)
From there, they will receive gear (if needed), maps and instructions! If volunteers have their own gear (gloves, pick-up tools and Hi Viz safety vests), please bring it!
The Quesnel Clean Team will be moving though the areas prior May 5 to pick up any dangerous items and drug paraphernalia. If any dangerous items are found on Friday or Saturday, the Clean Team will be available to pick it up. Students and volunteers will only be expected to pick up garbage.
Join us on Saturday, May 5 starting at 10 am and help keep our community clean!

City of Quesnel Mayor Bob Simpson stated:
“A great community is built and sustained by engaged citizens. When the community rolls up its sleeves and helps solve problems instead of just reporting them, our public areas stay safe and clean, so they can be enjoyed by everyone”
