DAWSON CREEK, B.C – The City of Dawson Creek’s annual spring maintenance cleanup in the City Cemetery and Brookside Cemetery will occur between May 3rd to May 7th.

Before the cleanup begins, the city requests community members to collect any items of significance or sentimental value that they feel may be removed. The items may be returned to the gravesite after May 7th.

Only items placed last year that appear damaged or broken during the annual cleanup, such as glass, natural flowers that have decayed or plastic flowers that have weathered and torn, will be thrown away.

The City says the cleanup takes place to accommodate operational maintenance, maintain the facility’s aesthetics, and protect the safety of workers and the visiting public in the coming year.
