Bins for Red River / Forks Waterway Cleanup

Bins for Red River / Forks Waterway Cleanup

The Forks is Manitoba’s top tourist destination, driving more than four million visitors into the Winnipeg community on an annual basis. The 54-acre site features a variety of shopping, dining, and entertainment experiences with the Red River being the winding focal point of it all. This makes for a complicated relationship between the two. The mixed commercial-residential hub depends upon the Red River to maintain its allure, but the former invariably contributes to pollution to the latter. This is the nature of population densification.

Last May (2024) eight First Nations filed a $4 billion lawsuit against the Federal Crown, the Province of Manitoba, and the City of Winnipeg, over what they claim is ongoing pollution of Lake Winnipeg by the city with Red River funneling waste into the Lake. Granted, the lawsuit came after a sewage leak near Fork Garry Bridge in south Winnipeg earlier in the year. The leak dumped more than 220 million liters of raw sewage flow into the Red River, and subsequently into Lake Winnipeg. The Forks community is not to blame, but all eyes are upon commercial, industrial, and residential properties that run along the waterway. This is expected to persist as the calls for greater care of Winnipeg’s environment are louder than ever. Consequently commercial and residential property owners, namely those with docks and watercraft that rest upon the river, are asked to play a larger role in the protection of the waterway. To be effective, cleanups should be ongoing. To make maintenance less labor intensive responsible stakeholders can call upon various services in Winnipeg. One such service is provided by Affordable Bins (yours truly).
