Celebrate Earth Day with a neighbourhood clean-up!
Beginning Sunday (April 18), the “little libraries” throughout our neighbourhood will be stocked with free Earth Day kits, while supplies list. The kits have outdoor clean-up supplies and some safety tips for how to clean outside while staying safe! Pick up your kit and head out anytime to clean up garbage from parks, green spaces, and boulevards throughout our neighbourhood leading up to Earth Day (Thursday, April 22)!
It’s a great idea to bring along a separate bag or container to collect any recyclable materials along the way, so you can add them to your recycling bin to avoid extra garbage going to the landfill.
Please respect COVID-19 public health guidelines and avoid large groups while participating in the clean-up. Follow the safety tips and don’t pick-up anything that may be sharp or dangerous. To report a litter issue, please call the Region of Waterloo’s 24-hour Customer Service Call Centre at 519-575-4400.
Note: Garbage bags of collected litter placed out for curbside garbage collection count as part of the household’s garbage limit.
