Clean Toronto Together 2022

This event has already taken place.

Clean Toronto Together invites residents, community groups, schools and businesses to spend 20-minutes picking up litter and recycling that’s accumulated in local parks and other public spaces over the winter. Join us April 22-24!

Important information for 2022:

  • The City has a limited supply of free litter bags to support resident-led cleanups.
  • Participants are encouraged to bring/reuse their own plastic bags to collect litter and recycling.

  • Special litter collection will be available to registered participants.
  • Safety tips and COVID-19 guidance will be provided to all registered participants.
