Make A Difference 
Organize a  
Clean Up 

Community Clean Up is a wonderful eco-action opportunity for everyone in Burlington to get involved! Since we began hosting this city-wide event in 2011, more than 121,000 participants have joined this collective effort resulting in cleaner parks, streams, schoolyards and neighbourhoods.

This year we aim to see 15,000 people participate in honour of BurlingtonGreen’s 15th anniversary! Everyone in Burlington is invited to organize a clean up and register it with us so we can track, measure and share the impact we have achieved, together.

Free supplies are available (bags and gloves and a clean up tips sheet), and by sharing your clean up information with us, you’ll be part of an impactful collective experience.  Your clean up will also be posted on our Community Clean Up map so everyone can learn which areas of Burlington are being cleaned up of litter, throughout the year.

NEW this year: learn about the Litter League Fundraising Challenge, and the nationwide Butt Blitz further below.
