The 20 Minute Makeover is on Wednesday, May 2! 

20 minute makeover


On Wednesday, May 2, City employees are throwing down their tools and picking up their hefty-sized black garbage bags for the annual 20-minute makeover. Join us! 

between 8:30am and 11:30am on Wednesday, May 2  

anywhere near your home, place of work, or wherever you see garbage! 

Details: Free garbage bags and graffiti remover are available at the City’s Parks office in the Sport Yukon building. Pick up between 8:30am-4:30pm Monday to Friday, before the event. 

Garbage Weigh-in: Bags of garbage should be dropped off at Shipyards Park by 11:30am the day of the event. Follow the signs to find where to place your bags. Sorting stations (metals, wood, paints, tires and construction material) will be on hand to divert waste from our landfill.  The “Oscar” will be awarded to the group with the heaviest trash pile at the park.

Let's celebrate! 
 All participants are invited to a free BBQ at Shipyards Park from 11:30am–1pm.  Please RSVP the number of people from your organization who plan to attend.
