2017 Clean and Green Community Cleanup

April 22 at 8:30 am to 11:30 am

Registration is now closed. Thank you for your interest.

On 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.

This is your opportunity to spend a few hours “spring cleaning” your neighbourhood by joining others to pick up litter along Guelph’s streets, green spaces, and community parks.

Last year, more than 900 people participated and picked up 5,350 kilograms of litter. It is true that when we work together, we can make a big difference.

The 2017 cleanup is open to everyone: individuals, teams, and neighbourhood and community groups. Participating high school students can earn credit towards their community involvement hours. Students must ask the crew leader to sign the required form.

Participants will be provided with cleanup kits, including safety vests for teams picking up litter along busy roads.

Cleanup kits can be picked up from the Park Operations and Forestry administrative office, located at 50 Municipal Street, between April 19 and 21.

Following the cleanup and to celebrate, there will be a free barbecue lunch at Riverside Park.
