Clean and Green Parks and Community Clean-up

Guelph’s annual spring clean up

Each year, over a thousand volunteers, including families, friends, community organizations, businesses, and school groups, participate in a spring community clean-up helping to make our parks and neighbourhoods more beautiful, and protecting our rivers, streams, drinking water and local wildlife.


Thanks for your interest in our spring 2024 Clean and Green community clean-up!

Registration is now closed for the season. Thanks to everyone who helped us to keep our city clean this spring. We had a record number of participants in 2024 – over 1,700 people!

Registration for next year’s campaign will be posted in March 2025.

Organize your own local parks clean-up between April and October

Did you know that you can do your own parks clean-up any-time of year outside of our spring campaign and get free clean-up supplies? Supplies may include garbage bags (small and large) and gloves (cloth and nitrile). We encourage groups to bring their own reusable bags to collect their supplies.

Supplies are available for pick-up from the front desk in any of the following City facilities from April 4, 2024 to October 31, 2024:

Safety tips

Please check out our safety tips and instructions before your group starts to collect litter. Once you have completed your clean-up, don’t forget to report that your garbage is ready for collection using the Report a problem map.
