Spring is here so it means it’s time to clean up our Capital and 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 April 15 to May 15.
Really easy to register, just visit the website below or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401) to register your cleanup. 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.
Select a location such as a park, ravine, shoreline, bus stop, pathway or any public area that requires litter pickup or graffiti removal.
Volunteers who register their cleanup project before April 14th also have a chance to win one of many early bird prizes donated by their generous sponsors. Volunteers who submit a final cleanup report by May 31 will be eligible for more prizes.
Now in its 25th year, this city-wide cleaning campaign brings together neighbors, communities and friends to help keep Ottawa clean and green! 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, graffiti-free and litter-free. GLAD Cleaning the Capital is also an excellent way for high school students to earn their community volunteer hours.
