Street Sweeping For Downtown

Posted By on Thu, May 15, 2008 at 3:56 PM

The first week of June is National Environmental Week and what better way to flex your green thumb than to join the 14th annual Clean Sweep event. The Downtown Halifax Business Commission (DHBC) has created an opportunity for business members to get outside and clean up the downtown core.

“Clean Sweep is a fun way for us, as Downtown businesses, to show we care about living and working in a clean and well-maintained community,” says Paul MacKinnon, Executive Director of DHBC. “It is our hope that this event inspires people to keep our streets clean year-round.”

Currently DHBC is looking for folks to get their sweep on. Please submit a maximum of two teams (consisting of four to six people) to Laura Hawkins at or call 423-2179. All applications must be received by May 28.
