Terrace is cleaning up the downtown on Sunday

Help cleanup downtown in Terrace, B.C.

Downtown cleanup takes place rain or shine this Sunday, March 20

Spring cleaning comes to town with the Downtown Cleanup this Sunday, March 20 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Brolly Square.

For the fourth or fifth year in a row, the Terrace Downtown Improvement Area (TDIA) Society invites everyone to come help clean up the main downtown area. After winter, there tends to be a lot of garbage stuck in trees and along the curbs, says Dennis Lissimore, manager of TDIA.

The reason we do it around spring break is due to the music festival because Garbathon is in the middle or end of the music festival so we do a cleanup of the downtown core [before that],” he says.

The TDIA area stretches from the legion to city hall and from Park Avenue down to the railway tracks, added Lissimore. The main area cleaned is generally the six blocks of downtown along the 4600 and 4700 blocks of Lakelse and Lazelle Ave.

Gloves and bags will be provided at the start point at Brolly Square as will instructions on what can be done with filled garbage bags.

Afterward, you will get a coupon for coffee at Xanders coffee shop.

The Downtown Cleanup goes rain or shine.
