Community Clean Up Green Up

Sponsored by the City of Burlington and other community supporters, BurlingtonGreen hosts a city-wide Clean Up event in April, plus a Green Up (tree planting) event in May, inviting all sectors of the community to get involved in cleaning and greening our beautiful city.

We extend a HUGE THANK YOU to the more than 17,000 participants of the Community Clean Up week contributing to a cleaner, greener, more beautiful Burlington! We invite you to please take our brief survey to let us know how much litter your group collected and to share your thoughts on the Clean Up experience.

About Green Up Day - Now Full!

With sponsorship from the City of Burlington, we are pleased to host a tree planting event at Brant Hills Park on Saturday, May 4, 2019, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. This is a great opportunity for you to help grow our urban tree canopy – we encourage you to get involved.

Refreshments will be available while quantities last.

Be sure to dress for the weather as the event will take place rain or shine. Please wear sturdy shoes or boots – no sandals or flip-flops please! (Sturdy soles help when digging with a shovel). We kindly ask that volunteers bring their own shovels, if you can.

2018 Community clean up green up

We extend a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who participated in last year's Community Clean Up event. That's more than 13,900 of you! Now let's make this year's event even BIGGER AND BETTER!

Check out the Green Wall of Fame for photos from the 2018 Clean Up Green Up!

This popular dual-component event hosted by BurlingtonGreen and sponsored by the City of Burlington, provides an important (and fun!) opportunity for citizens, schools, businesses, neighbourhoods and community groups to come together to clean up and green up Burlington. What a great and meaningful way to celebrate our beautiful city!

To date, more than 90,000 participants have joined the collective clean up effort resulting in cleaner parks, streams, schoolyards and neighbourhoods. Hundreds more have helped to improve local biodiversity, by removing invasive plants from local natural areas and by planting thousands of native plants, shrubs and trees.

We invite YOU to gather your family, friends, group members and coworkers to participate in these IMPACTFUL eco-action events!

You can download our poster here to help us promote this great event. A legal-sized poster with a blank section for you to record your own clean-up event details is also available here.
