Let’s Clean Up Our City!

I hope to see everyone out for the upcoming #Guelph Clean & Green community event on Saturday April 25th. Please take the time to register!

Residents have until Friday, April 17 to register for this year’s Clean and Green Community Cleanup. Volunteers can register by calling the Operations Department at 519-837-5628 extension 3305 or going online to guelph.ca.

The City of Guelph, together with Tim Horton’s, Guelph & Wellington Development Association, Terra View Homes, Guelph Downtown Business Association, Zehrs Markets and M&M Meat Shops are hosting the city-wide cleanup to help remove unsightly litter from our community.

The cleanup takes place Saturday, April 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  Clean-up crews will be picking up litter along predetermined roadways, boulevards, parks and trails that need a spring cleaning.

Clean-up crews will be provided with supplies and instructions for collecting litter safely.

All volunteers will be invited to attend an appreciation barbecue following the event.

The Clean and Green event is one of Guelph’s largest community environmental clean-up events.  Last year, over 4,000 kilograms of garbage was removed from neighbourhood streets, green spaces and community parks by more than 850 volunteers. That work helped to ensure more enjoyable common spaces for everyone.

Thanks,

Cam

  1. It’s a sad commentary on Guelph residents that we even have to have an event like this!
