This year’s Clean and Green community clean-up of Guelph’s parks, trails and open spaces will look a little different, but the premise remains the same: give back to the spaces that give so much to us, especially during times like these.

This year’s event will be a schedule-your-own clean-up event. Register your clean up online by selecting a space from our map (so we’re not all cleaning the same places) and clean April 13-May 11. We’ll provide you with a garbage drop-off location within the registered area.

If you would like us to provide you with garbage bags and gloves, just let us know when you register and provide an address for delivery. Supplies will be dropped off within five business days of registration.

Keep yourself safe by wearing a mask and gloves while cleaning up and stay two metres (6.5 feet) from people you don’t live with.

Register online in four easy steps:

  1. Check the map to see if your preferred location is available; outlined in green.
  2. Click your location and make note of the name of the location on the map.
  3. Select the location name from the drop down menu.
  4. Click submit to register.

Please email or call 519-837-5626 if you want to clean up a location not shown on the map, or need help with registration.

Clean and Green is a community event that encourages volunteers to sign up to help clean select parks, trails and greenspaces. The last clean up in 2019 involved over 1,200 volunteers. Together, we cleaned 78 parks and 35 trails and roadways, collecting a total of 3,300 kilograms, or a hippo’s weight in garbage.
