The City of Ottawa and GLAD are pleased to announce that early bird registration is open for the GLAD Cleaning the Capital campaign, which will take place from September 15th to October 15th. Registration is quick and easy. The interactive map will show you which locations have already been claimed, and the online registration form will allow you to choose your own project site and indicate the cleanup supplies that you need.
Volunteers who register their cleanup project before September 14th have a chance to win one of many early bird prizes donated by our generous sponsors. Volunteers who submit a final cleanup report by October 31st will be eligible for more prizes.
Last year alone, 75,547 volunteers collected 60,437 kg of litter during 1,259 cleanup events.
This is a great opportunity for families and friends to work together on community cleanup projects that help make Ottawa clean, green and free of litter and graffiti. GLAD Cleaning the Capital is also an excellent way for high school students to earn their community volunteer hours.
