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.

2019 Clean and Green event

The 16th annual Clean and Green clean up had over 1,200 volunteers. Together, we cleaned 78 parks and 35 trails and roadways, collecting a total of 3,300 kilograms of garbage. Stay tuned for details on the 2020 Clean and Green event.

If you’d like to organize a community clean-up of your local park, greenspace or trail at another time of year please get in touch with us at
