Spring Up to Clean Up

Program Update

Stay tuned for information about our 28th annual Spring Up to Clean Up in May 2024. 

Registration is now closed for Spring Up to Clean Up 2023.

Thank you to all participants for helping to make our city clean, green & beautiful! 


Ways to Participate

  • Community and Family groups: Organize a group of friends and/or family to collect litter around your block, at your favourite greenspace or shoreline area, or plan a neighbourhood-wide cleanup. Get creative and plan a walking or hiking adventure while picking up litter or try plogging – jogging and cleaning-up together 
  • Workplaces and Organizations: Plan a time to get together and clean up the area around your workplace, church, or community center or business. This team-building activity will benefit your group as well as the environment!
  • Schools: Get students together for a schoolyard cleanup or supervised clean up in the area around the school property. Teach students the harms of litter in our environment and inspire environmental stewardship.
