Public Works Week

Family Fun and Insider’s Look at Public Works

Curious about how water gets from the reservoir to your tap? Want to see some big trucks up close? Wonder what you can put into each waste cart?

You can get an insider’s look at Port Coquitlam’s Public Works services – from water to waste, roads to parks – beginning May 17 -23 we will be featuring videos of what our city provides to give you a behind the scenes look.

In Port Coquitlam we are all about getting the basics right for our community and Public Works are key to delivering the core services that matter to our residents and we rely on as part of our daily lives.

These include:

  • clean and safe water to our City when you turn on the tap water
  • helping you get around safely with street cleaning, sidewalks, street lights, signage and lane markings
  • sewer services
  • garbage and green waste collection and recycling services
  • parks and playgrounds for families to enjoy

This year’s theme is the Rhythm of Public Works which speaks to the coordination involved in delivering these services and improving the quality of life of our residents. Which speaks to the collaboration it takes to quality of life services for a better community to live in.

Drive By for Essential Workers

City fleet vehicles will also do a drive-by each day of the week between 2 and 3 p.m. in different parts of the community beginning May 19 – 22, 2020. Residents are encouraged to give them a wave as they drive by.
