Nanaimo Cleaner Community Partnership Program

City partners with non profit groups
City pays non-profit groups $50/km

The City of Nanaimo is inviting registered non-profit groups to participate in a City wide litter picking program. The Cleaner Community Partnership program will help groups raise funds and gain recognition while making Nanaimo a cleaner, more attractive community. In 2014 the program collected over 800 bags of litter.

The 2015 program is available for a limited number of registered non-profit groups. Approved groups will be offered opportunities to pick up litter along community streets twice in 2015, once in spring and once in fall.

The City provides safety vests, trash bags, gloves, road safety signs and collection and disposal of litter collected.

Participating organizations must appoint a minimum of six volunteers per group who are at least 12 years old and provide insurance, protective clothing, adult supervision and transportation. Supervisors will be required to attend a scheduled orientation/safety training session provided by the City.

To request an application: Email - Public.WorksInfo@nanaimo.ca , Call 250 758 522 or drop in to the Public Works Department on 2020 Labieux Road. Applications must be received by 23rd March.
