Neighbourhood Cleanup Party

COVID-19 update: Neighbourhood Cleanup Program

November 9, 2020: To comply with Provincial Public Health Orders issued on November 7, all neighbourhood litter cleanups are temporarily postponed until November 23, 2020, or until the health orders are lifted.

Thank you for your patience and ongoing support for our program. Check back for updates.

Usually, you tidy before company comes. But when you host or join a Neighbourhood Cleanup Party, the cleaning is part of the fun!
