Wow! 14,300+ made a difference to help the planet locally – A new record for Burlington!

We extend a HUGE thank you to everyone in Burlington who pitched-in for Clean Up week and Earth Day this year to help keep our city clean, green, and beautiful.

We had hoped it would be an epic Clean Up event this year to mark BurlingtonGreen's 10th anniversary, and Ontario & Canada's 150th, and you didn't let us down!

  • sdc small14,300 registered participants (up from 11,135 last year; previous record 13,500 in 2013).

  • 106 groups total (up from 88 last year).  58 community groups, 37 schools, 11 businesses.

  • About 155 locations cleaned up across Burlington.

  • At least 44 of those locations were along creeks and shorelines, to help keep our watersheds and natural habitats healthy, and included some major hauls of trash (photos to come).

  • Tonnes and tonnes of garbage and recyclables collected – results still being tabulated.

  • Loads of fun had by many. Who'd have thought cleaning up garbage could be so much fun?

  • Many photos shared.

  • Another great Eco-fair Celebration at Central Park/Library afterward.  Thanks to all who joined us.
     
  • Plus, 1 BIG announcement – David Suzuki is coming to Burlington, November 21st!  Save the date. View the announcement at the Eco-fair here, in case you missed it.

  • Several great sponsors and partners helped make the whole event happen (listing below).  Thank you to all for your support of this important and impactful annual event.
