20 minute makeover

The 20th anniversary of the 20 Minute Makeover is coming up on May 15, 2019! 

On Wednesday, May 15, City employees are throwing down their tools and picking up their hefty-sized black garbage bags for the annual 20-minute makeover.

When: between 8:30 am and 11:30 am on Wednesday, May 15 

Location: your home, place of work, school or anywhere you see garbage 

Details: Free garbage bags and graffiti remover are available at the City’s Parks office in the Sport Yukon Building. 

Free BBQ: Join us at Shipyards Park at 12 noon. Sorting stations (metals, wood, paints, tires and construction material) will be on hand to divert waste from our landfill.
