pbp Community Clean UP

By John Kipp   

The day was slightly overcast but comfortable for the PBP Community’s annual clean-up drive led by PBPCA’s Events Director, Jenny Keyes on September 12th. The operation was based in the parking lot of the Nellie McClung school and ran between 9:00 am and 2.00 pm. On hand were several City of Calgary garbage trucks, an electronics recycling van, several shredded paper receptacles, and an area where residents could drop off or bring home household items such as lamps, bicycles, tableware, and toys. According to PBP member Barb Meikle, “Not only was this a well-run operation, but highly efficient. It took no time whatsoever to get through the line, only to be met by smiling volunteers who were there to assist in removing the articles.”

PBP Community President, Susan Russell was also on hand to help with the clean-up but was a little disappointed with the turnout. “This is such a wonderful opportunity to use these resources to get rid of those boxes of paper, yard waste, and other large and unused items in a responsible and eco-friendly way!” One resident noted that the commercial cost of shredding the two full banker boxes of paper he brought saved him at least $60 which was well worth the cost of his ten-dollar PBPCA membership. “We’ll have to do a better job advertising this event for next year,” added Russell “so that none of these trucks return empty.”
