Help clean up Guelph on April 22

Register now for 14th annual Guelph Clean and Green Community Cleanup

Guelph, Ont., March 3, 2017 – On Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, the City of Guelph is hosting its 14th annual Guelph Clean and Green Community Cleanup—one of the city’s largest community environmental cleanup events.

The cleanup begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 11:30 a.m. with a free celebration barbecue lunch for all participants.

The event is an opportunity for residents to spend a few hours ‘spring cleaning’ their neighbourhood by joining others to pick up litter along Guelph’s streets, green spaces, and in community parks.

Last year, more than 900 people picked up more than 5,350 kilograms of litter.

This year’s cleanup is once again open to everyone: individuals, teams, neighbourhoods, and community groups. Participating high school students can earn credit towards their community involvement hours.

How to register

Participants must register in advance and sign up for a pre-determined location by completing the online registration form, emailing or calling 519-822-1260 extension 3305. Registration closes on Tuesday, April 11.

Cleanup kits can be picked up from the Parks Operations and Forestry administrative office, 50 Municipal Street, between Wednesday, April 19 and Friday, April 21.

Thanks to our sponsors

Zehrs, Terra View Homes, the Downtown Guelph Business Association, and Guelph and Wellington Development Association are sponsoring the citywide community cleanup.
