Make a positive difference for the local environment, as well as in the quality of life for you and your neighbours. It's easy!
Community cleanups get many people involved and thinking about the environment. They bring neighbours, colleagues or classmates together in a common cause. They provide an opportunity to see how a small act for a short time can have a large physical impact and they may help participants develop a sense of their influence on their environment. And when community members get involved in cleaning their neighbourhoods, parks and open spaces, they are less likely to litter and are more likely to keep it clean!
Organize your Own Cleanup of a local park, public space or trail.Small bags and gloves are available. Register your clean-up for supplies and support).Cleanups taking place during the month of April in honour of Earth Day.
