Thank You: Community Effort Helps Beautify North Bend During Inaugural Earth Day Event

The City of North Bend wishes to express its gratitude for the community effort during the City’s inaugural, two-day Beautification Days Event in honor of Earth Day.

On Sunday, April 18th and Monday, April 19th, residents, multiple community organizations, local businesses, Republic Services representatives, Councilmembers, the Mayor and City staff turned out to collect garbage and recyclables around the City.

North Bend Beautification Days was an idea of the City’s employee Wellness Committee and the North Bend Downtown Foundation – as a Covid-safe, small-scale way to celebrate Earth Day through positive community impact by partnering with Empower Youth Network and Republic Services. The committee then decided to invite residents to join in by cleaning up their own neighborhoods and/or favorite recreation spots, with an added bonus opportunity for residents to win prizes from the North Bend Theatre.

“Due to Covid-19 public health guidelines, we couldn’t do the large Earth Day event as we had hoped, but by asking community members to find their own part of the City to tidy up, we harnessed the compounding power of small efforts for the greater good,” explained Communications Manager Danna McCall.

Mayor McFarland commented, “It was good to see citizens’ positive energy to help their environment over the course of the two-day event.  There was a true sense of caring and commitment to make us all better, for which myself, Councilmembers and City staff are grateful.”

Areas like McClellan Ave, Southfork Ave, North Bend Way east of downtown, and the historic downtown core were the primary focus of city volunteers. As a result, approximately two large waste containers at City Hall were filled with recyclables and debris collected during the event.

Thank You to residents and our community partners!
