Springtime Spruce Up Cranbrook – April 18 - 25, 2021

April 15, 2021

Cranbrook, BC (April 15, 2021) – With the return of spring, the City of Cranbrook is asking residents and businesses to join us in our annual Springtime Spruce Up Cranbrook campaign-- a community clean-up and beautification initiative. 
 
Our Springtime Spruce Up 2021 campaign is to encourage business owners and residents to take 20-minutes and spruce up the area around their business or home. Twenty minutes can make a big difference! A clean and litter-free community is one of the ways we can help take care of our planet and encourage a sense of pride in our community.

Through the effort of many volunteers, we will work to remove litter and debris from our parks, the creek, our neighborhoods, streets, schools, and public areas including in and around our many businesses.  

Schools within Cranbrook have been actively involved in cleaning up their school yards each year with loads of garbage bags being collected. Several local clubs, organizations, Chamber members, the Downtown Business Association and many other citizens have been and continue to be very supportive of this program.     

With the COVID-19 restrictions and provincial health orders in place, we ask that those participating to be in small groups – preferably with people within your own household or work cohorts, be properly physically distanced, wear a mask and bring hand sanitizer with you.

Please help by registering yourself, your business or organization with the City’s Recreation and Culture department as a participant in this year’s Springtime Spruce Up campaign. Email [email protected] or call us at 250-489-0220 today and we will provide you with some bags.
