GLAD Cleaning the Capital

cleaningthecapital

GLAD’s Cleaning the Capital campaign has officially begun and will take place until October 15th!

 

This morning, my staff and I were happy to head into the community to help clean up the intersection of Stittsville Main St and Hazeldean. Now, it is your opportunity to do the same!

 

Registration is quick and easy:

  • Go to ottawa.ca/clean, 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.

 

GLAD 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, 72,000 volunteers collected more than 58,182 kilograms of litter from 1,300 projects.

 

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.
