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 www.toronto.ca/cleantoronto 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
