More than 40 enthusiastic summer students from across the company participated in a community clean-up day in Uptown Saint John earlier this week.

In partnership with the Green Machine provided by the City of Saint John, the group efficiently covered a significant area during their clean up efforts resulting in over 30 bags of garbage. 

Throughout Saint John, several groups and local organizations hold activities to clean and revitalize their neighborhood during the warmer months. To aid and encourage these types of events, the City of Saint John has introduced The Green Machine. The Green Machine is a 14-foot trailer equipped with all the tools and supplies needed to support clean-up operations. It's also free for anyone to reserve through the City of Saint John website.
