Clean Toronto Together 2014

Every spring, the City of Toronto invites residents, community groups and businesses to clean Toronto. Get together with friends, family, coworkers and classmates to clean a park, laneway or any other space that needs your help. The Corporate & School Clean-up Day is on Friday, April 25 and the Community Clean-up Days are on Saturday April 26 & Sunday April 27. Participants can also plant a new tree, apply some mulch or assist a community garden. Working together we can keep Toronto clean and green. To register your event, find out where to obtain garbage and recycling bags and learn more, please visit or call 311.

If you and your friends and family participate in Spring Clean-up Day, it is important to remember these litter pick-up safety tips:

  • Do not pick up dangerous articles (needles, metal, chemicals, medical waste) – report the location of these items to 311.
  • Report suspicious items to the Toronto Police Service’s non-emergency telephone number 416-808-2222.
  • Do not pick up litter on a road. When near or adjacent a road – be mindful of vehicles at all times.
  • Do not handle any hazardous wastes (batteries, paints, motor oil or chemicals) – report the location of these items to 311.
  • Do not work on unstable or slippery ground (ravines, river banks), in tunnels, or near stormwater management facilities.
  • Wear appropriate and protective clothing (gloves, boots, rain jacket, hat).
  • Do not pick up or move heavy tree limbs and objects
