Clean Up Green Up

Each April, BurlingtonGreen hosts this citywide event inviting all sectors of the community to get involved in cleaning up our beautiful city. To date, 77,300 participants have joined the collective effort resulting in cleaner parks, streams, school yards and neighbourhoods. Green Up event volunteers take part in a rewarding spring stewardship project.

The event invites citizens, schools, groups and businesses to join together to take action locally by cleaning up litter and garbage in several areas of the city. An Eco-fair celebration event is held on the afternoon of the Clean Up to thank participants, celebrate Earth Day, and give the public the opportunity to browse various exhibitors' display tables.

This year's event was held on:
