TOGETHER, WE CAN REDUCE LITTER
Winnipeg, Manitoba—Winnipeg, it’s time to Team Up to Clean Up and #CleanCanadaTogether.
Today, Take Pride Winnipeg! released the results of its annual Litter Index. It is rated 1 to 4, with a score of 1 representing no litter, and a score of 4 representing extremely littered. The city of Winnipeg was divided into 12 areas and streets in each area were rated. The average score for Winnipeg as a whole was 2.24 in April 2019 (to compare, April 2018 scored 2.17).

“Let’s all work together to clean up our city and show off its beauty,” said executive director Tom Ethans. “By teaming up to clean up, we increase community pride.”
Tim Hortons Team Up to Clean Up campaign aims to beautify the community through the efforts of thousands of volunteers picking up litter in their neighbourhoods. Take Pride Winnipeg! will provide free garbage bags to any community group, family, business or school who wishes to join the team.
Cities across Canada are joining forces again this year to #CleanCanadaTogether. Cleanups can be fun and great way to meet like-minded people! It's also an opportunity to exercise, get outdoors and contribute to healthy living.
