January 11, 2013 Overnight Snow Left It’s Mark
SSCOPE crews and leaders took on the challenge head on and worked Saturday, Sunday and all day Monday, including overnight work for City of Winnipeg properties on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to clean up the over 120 properties SSCOPE has snow shoveling contracts for. It was a great effort by over 30 employees and staff at SSCOPE to focus only on serving our customers as quickly as possible.
Our Media News Release about Snow Shoveling work and our Christmas Tree recycling program is available HERE.
SSCOPE has a business and employment growth plan which calls for doubling of our snow shoveling and lawn cutting contracts in the next two years. This example of how we attempt to serve our customers will be a good example to tell prospective new customers.
The Board of Directors and Executive Director of SSCOPE want to officially thank all the SSCOPE members and staff who “stepped up” and met the January Blizzard challenge.
Changing Lives!…A Stronger Healthier Community…The SSCOPE Way!
The Christmas Tree pickup program took centre stage at SSCOPE late last week keeping our employees busy. We expect the demand to continue to for another two weeks or so bringing welcome employment and revenue to SSCOPE in our efforts to help those with mental health difficulties by creating real employment.
The fee for a SSCOPE Team Leader and employee-members to come by and pickup your tree for recycling throughout the City of Winnipeg is $25.00, cheque, cash upon pickup or credit card in advance. There is an additional $5.00 surcharge for pickups in outlying regions of Winnipeg.
To book your Christmas tree pickup please email email@example.com with details, with the words Christmas Tree Pickup in the “subject” line, or call 204 987-6300.
