20 minute makeover

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

On May 2, 2018, a whopping 1,750 kilograms of litter and garbage were cleaned up from Whitehorse properties, alleyways and greenbelts. Yukon government collected 650 kilograms, the City of Whitehorse collected 600 kilograms, and the Whitehorse business community collected just over 500 kilograms. The City congratulates Yukon government for winning! 

Congratulations to The Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce who won the inaugural Champion Sorters award, graciously donated by Lumel Studios. The Champion Sorters award was created for the team that diverted the most waste from our landfill. 

The City has promoted spring cleanup events for over 20 years and it gets bigger and better every year. This is one of many steps the City is taking towards a more environmentally sustainable community.
