Get involved and join your neighbours and friends from April 17 to 23 to help keep Clarington litter-free. Lets work together to clear garbage and recycling that’s accumulated over the winter and ensure our neighbourhoods, local parks, green spaces, and trails are beautiful and safe for everyone to enjoy.

To organize a cleanup in your neighbourhood, email Let them know which park, trail, or green space you’ll be cleaning and how many people will be helping out. Garbage bags and gloves will be provided, and disposal of the collected waste will be coordinated.

When we all pitch in together, we can make a big difference!
