The City of Ottawa and Tim Hortons are pleased to announce the annual Tim Hortons Cleaning the Capital campaign, which takes place from September 15 to October 15.
My office and I will be out on the town cleaning up Hazeldean and Stittsville Main St next Friday, September 23rd and I invite all residents to join us for this great initiative. I also encourage you to start up your own cleaning project teams.
If you, or someone you know, plan on participating, simply follow the registration guidelines below and do not hesitate to let me know when and where you will be as the Tims fairies love to stop by to say thanks.
Registration is quick and easy:
- Go to Ottawa.ca, or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401), to register for the cleanup. The interactive map on our website will show you which locations have already been claimed, allow you to register your own project site and choose the cleanup supplies that you need.
- Select a location such as a park, ravine, shoreline, bus stop, pathway or any public area that requires litter pickup or graffiti removal.
Volunteers who register their cleanup project before Wednesday, September 14 have a chance to win one of many early-bird prizes donated by our generous sponsors. Volunteers who submit a final cleanup report by Monday, October 31 will be eligible for more prizes.
Tim Hortons Cleaning the Capital is a city-wide event that brings together neighbours, communities and friends to help keep Ottawa clean and green. Last year alone, 82,000 volunteers collected more than 65,600 kilograms of litter from 1,400 locations.
This is a great opportunity for families and friends to work together on community cleanup projects that help make Ottawa clean, green, graffiti-free and litter-free. Cleaning the Capital is also an excellent way for high school students to earn their community volunteer hours.
