It’s that time of year again.
The snow has pretty much disappeared in each of the communities and it’s soon time for spring clean-up.
Cleaning crews in Nain can expect a much easier job this spring.
Sarah Leo is the AngajukKak for the Nain Inuit Community Government.
She says Nain’s plastic bag ban has made a dramatic difference in the amount of trash found around town.
As the snow melts and reveals the collected litter below, there is a lot less to be found around Nain.
Leo says she flew into the community yesterday and couldn’t believe the difference in the amount of trash.
Especially in areas such as the airstrip and the point near the dump that are usually covered in trash.
This is the first spring clean-up since Nain’s plastic bag ban was enforced.
