Cleaning the Capital early bird registration now open

City of Ottawa 

Early-bird registration is now available for Ottawa's annual GLAD Cleaning the Capital campaign, which takes place from April 15 to May 15.

Go to or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401) to register for the cleanup. Check the interactive map to see which locations have already been claimed, to register your own project site, and to choose the cleanup supplies that you need. You can select any location, such as a park, ravine, shoreline, bus stop, pathway or other public area that requires litter pickup or graffiti removal.

Win prizes
Volunteers who register their cleanup project before April 14 have a chance to win one of many early bird prizes donated by sponsors. Volunteers who submit a final cleanup report by May 31 will be eligible for more prizes.

GLAD Cleaning the Capital is a city-wide event that brings together neighbours, communities and friends to help keep Ottawa clean and green! Last year alone, 72,000 volunteers collected more than 58,182 kilograms of litter from 1,300 projects.

This is a great opportunity for families and friends to work together on community cleanup projects that help make Ottawa clean, green, graffiti-free and litter-free. Cleaning the Capital is also an excellent way for high school students to earn their community volunteer hours.
