Kitchener Community Clean Ups 

What: Community clean-ups bring neighbours, colleagues or classmates together for a common cause – cleaning up our community. They provide an opportunity to see how a small act for a short time can have a great impact. And, when people get involved in cleaning their neighbourhoods, parks and open spaces, they are less likely to litter – and more likely to keep it clean. Choose a date, time and clean-up location that works best for you. 

When: Materials will be available for pick up after April 1. Register for clean-up time that works for you! 

Where: Your neighborhood, school or near your workplace: anywhere!

When: If you need supplies, click here to register your school-yard clean-up by Friday, April 5. Kits will be sent out the week of April 8.
