Clean and Green

Guelph’s annual spring clean up

Every year, thanks to over 1,000 volunteers and dozens of sponsors, the City of Guelph’s annual Clean and Green community clean up makes our parks and neighbourhoods more beautiful, and protects our rivers, streams, drinking water, and local wildlife.

Join us this year for our 15th annual Clean and Green spring clean up on Saturday, April 21 and celebrate Earth Day by cleaning up our community green spaces.
