Spring is on its way and the Cleaning the Capital Spring Campaign will proceed with registration starting March 15th, and cleanup projects taking place between April 15 and May 31.
Cleaning the Capital is a citywide cleanup that occurs in the spring and fall of every year, bringing Ottawa residents together as a community to help clean litter from our public spaces. Cleaning the Capital is an exciting opportunity for residents to show their civic pride and take an active role in helping maintain a beautiful city.
Participants can register their cleanup projects by using the online registration form available at ottawa.ca/clean or by calling 3-1-1. The registration form populates an interactive map, showing which locations have already been chosen for cleanup projects.
Participants can choose from a variety of public spaces to clean, including green spaces and community parks, roadsides, shorelines, or even areas around bus stops. Cleanup kits, which include garbage bags, recycling bags, paper bags, and gloves, will be made available for pick-up by registrants at one of ten City of Ottawa facilities across the city. This year, based on survey data from participants and demand, we are including three additional pick-up locations for cleanup kits!
