Environment and Open Spaces

The Spence Neighbourhood is the area between Portage and Notre Dame Avenues and Balmoral Street to Agnes Street. This 25 block area is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Winnipeg, and has a rich history to be shared. Click here to read more.

 

We envision that the residents of the Spence Neighbourhood will look upon their past, present and future with pride. We encourage the community to maintain the green spaces, boulevards, and their home areas. We envision members of the Spence Neighbourhood taking pride in living in the Spence Area which will help to reflect a more positive perception among the community at large.

Organic and Household Waste

 

What is composting?

 

Composting is the natural process of breaking down organic material, such as kitchen and yard waste, to produce a nutrient-rich, soil-like material. The process works with the help of micro-organisms such as bacteria and fungi combined with air and moisture.
