About Keep Vancouver Spectacular

Keep Vancouver Spectacular brings together individuals, business, and neighbourhood groups to participate in cleanup projects removing litter from streets, lanes, and shorelines. As part of the program, the City provides free cleanup tools and services to volunteers. Community volunteer cleanups are also supported year round.

Vancouver’s clean streets are among the reasons why Vancouver is one of the most livable cities in the world. When Keep Vancouver Spectacular first began in 1996, there were 1,500 volunteers. Last year, 180 groups with 16,400 volunteers came together to fill more than 6,000 bags with litter. This year, the program expanded from a single month cleanup in May to a year-round suite of programs including a cleanup in October, the electronics recycling drop-off days, and an adopt-a-block program.
