2020 GLAD Fall Cleaning the Capital - Join our team and keep the city clean

(Theme 7 – Waste)

Organization: City of Ottawa

Timeline for Completion: Sept 15 to Oct 15


The GLAD Cleaning the Capital campaign is a citywide cleanup that occurs in the spring and fall of every year. Residents come together as a community and combine efforts to make our city clean and green. Litter pickup or graffiti removal projects must be registered, and participating teams, upon request, receive a cleanup starter kit to assist them with their projects. Participants who register their cleanups during the campaign’s early bird registration period and/or submit their on-line cleanup reports after their cleanup are eligible to win prizes donated by the campaign’s generous sponsors.

2020 marks the 27th year of the GLAD Cleaning the Capital campaign! The annual cleanup campaign first began in 1994 as a springtime cleanup. In 2006, due to the spring campaign’s overwhelming success an annual fall cleanup was added. Since 1994, more than 1.3 million volunteers have participated in more than 22,000 cleanup projects throughout the city. As a result, an estimated 1,100,000 kilograms of waste has been removed from our public spaces.

Register your litter pickup or graffiti removal project by September 14 to be eligible to win an early bird prize donated by our generous sponsors.
