Clean and Green

Guelph’s annual spring clean up

Thanks to over 1,200 volunteers and numerous sponsors every year, our annual Clean and Green community clean up makes our parks and neighbourhoods more beautiful, and protects our rivers, streams, drinking water, and local wildlife.

Do your own Clean and Green cleanup

We’ve created a modified Clean and Green this year. Register for a park, trail or roadway of your choice and clean that area between April 13-May 11, leaving your garbage at the designated drop off site. When you register, you can ask for garbage bags and gloves. We’ll make arrangements to deliver your clean up supplies directly to you within five business days of registering. You supply your own masks and extra hands!

Our last clean up in 2019 saw 1,200 volunteers clean 78 parks and 35 trails and roadways. They collected over 3,300 kilograms of waste.

Staying safe from COVID-19 while cleaning

Keep yourself safe by wearing a mask and gloves whole cleaning up and stay 2 metres (6.5 feet) from people you don’t live with.
