On May 3, 2015 SECURE Energy Services employees, friends and family members joined over 2,000 other volunteers in Calgary to help clean up the city’s parks and pathways along the river.
The 48th Annual Pathway and River Cleanup is held each spring to help clean up areas around the city as we say goodbye to winter and welcome warmer days. As a company that’s so passionate about helping our customers minimize their impact on the environment, this event was a natural fit for our employees to participate in.
The team took to the pathway along the Elbow River and collected 10 large bags of garbage.
“Everyone was excited to get out and make a difference. I thought it was a great way to give back to the community while having fun with co-workers and getting to know other SECURE team members,” says Jessica Dzurman, HR advisor with SECURE Energy Services.
“It was a really nice day out to clean. It didn’t feel like work at all in the sun,” adds Kathy Telkamp, Jr. Well Operations Analyst for SECURE. “We had a really great group out that was eager to get everything off the pathways. People were rummaging through the bushes, trying to grab anything that was out place. We all felt really good about what we were able to accomplish.”
The Pathway and River Cleanup is coordinated by Parks in partnership with Waste & Recycling Services, Animal & Bylaw Services and the Calgary Fire Department. This is SECURE’s third year participating in the event.
