Transcona BIZ invites you to celebrate the season changing with our annual 2023 Community Clean Up event! Transcona BIZ encourages community members, students and teachers to visit the Transcona BIZ office at 108 Bond Street during the week of May 8th-12th between 10AM-2PM to pick up your clean up kit.
Once you have your kits, throughout the week of May 14th-20th, 2023 we invite teams or community members to choose an area of our community and use their kits to collect garbage in our already beautiful community of Transcona. Bags of garbage can be dropped off in the blue Waste Connections bin next to the stage at Transcona Centennial Square during that week.
Our friends and member business The McCreedy Knox Team will be hosting a Community Clean Up Wrap Up party to celebrate our clean up success! This will take place on Saturday, May 20th from 12pm-3pm in the parking lot of 549 Regent Ave West. There will be hot dogs, clean up kits and a designated area for your clean up bags to be collected.
In addition, Transcona BIZ wants to see how you’ll be taking part! Make sure to use the hashtag #TransconaCleanUp on your publicly posted social media clean up photos (screenshots are welcome to be e-mailed!) to be entered to win prizes, including gift certificates to Transcona BIZ Member businesses! Draw will take place May 23rd, 2023.
We know the residents of Transcona have a great sense of pride that has helped continue our reputation as the Park City. We are looking forward to seeing the community come together to spruce Transcona up for Spring! Thank you to Take Pride Winnipeg for their generous support and to our member business McCreedy Knox for hosting our Community Clean Up wrap up!
Every spring since 2015, the Transcona BIZ partners with upwards of 3,500 locals from business sponsors, students of Transcona schools, community groups and members to clean up Transcona. Scouring the streets and parks for garbage has drastically improved our ranking – Transcona went from being last on Take Pride Winnipeg’s Litter Index (dirtiest community) in 2015, to the cleanest community in Winnipeg in 2017! Support from our community has grown over the years, with our 2019 event being the largest community clean-up in the City of Winnipeg!
Our summer students were able to collect over 60 bags of garbage in the Transcona area, and we had numerous community groups who collected countless bags to add to the total. We would like to extend a great big thank you to our many volunteers, Presenting Sponsor The Chamois Car Wash and Detail Centre, and Gold Sponsor former Councillor Shawn Nason for taking part in our 2020 Annual Community Clean-Up.

A huge thank you to Take Pride Winnipeg and Recycle Everywhere for their donation of gloves and garbage bags for our clean up kits and their ongoing support.
