WINNIPEG – With the weather starting to warm up, lots of junk is starting to turn up on our roads.
Each year, Take Pride Winnipeg surveys the streets of Winnipeg for its annual Spring Litter Index.
It ranks them one on a scale from one to four, with four being the most filthy.
Tom Ethans with Take Pride Winnipeg tells 680 CJOB, they are doing a better job of getting the message across to young people.
“They are now working up the ladder to their parents and older siblings to get them to understand how everyone has to work together to make a difference.”
You can view the full index from Take Pride Winnipeg below.
