Pick up trash for cash!
The Town of Whitecourt is seeking non-profit organizations to perform refuse pickup duties within the community, including highway ditches and boulevards. The refuse pickup schedule will run to the end of October (weather permitting). At least one group is needed for July and one group for August.
To qualify for the program, groups must provide a written request to the Town, outlining how the funds would be used, confirming dates that the group would be available to perform the work, and providing an address and phone number for two group representatives.
Please note: All those participating in clean up activities must be 9 years of age or older.
Groups must provide a minimum of 12 volunteers, with at least one adult for every two youth (aged 9 to 17 years); and must contribute a minimum of 100 person hours of clean up work to receive payment of $1,000.00 per group.
*Smaller groups are encouraged to partner to complete the 100 volunteer hours and split the $1,000 payment!
For further details, please contact the Infrastructure Services Department at 780-778-2705.
