Photo Gallery: Spring Clean-Up Week will appear here on the public site.
Show your community pride and join us for Cornwall Spring Clean-Up Week from April 23rd to April 29th!
With spring finally here, it's time to pitch in and clean Cornwall.
Gather up a team of friends, family, co-workers, classmates or neighbours and help make our City look even better by cleaning a park, boulevard or other public space!
Working together we can keep Cornwall clean and green!
In 2015, there were 48 groups and 632 individuals who registered and volunteered to clean up a park, street or other public space during the weeklong event. Over 34 tonnes of litter was collected in all!
Participating in the Spring Clean-Up Week is easy - and you can win some great prizes!
Simply fill out our short registration form below and let us know what area of Cornwall you plan to clean up.
To see a list of locations that other groups have already signed up to clean, please scroll to the
bottom of this page.
Clean-Up Kits consisting of garbage bags and gloves can be provided to you and your team. Once finished, the collected garbage can be disposed of in one of the waste bins that have been set up for the week (see map with locations below). Or, if it's more convenient, it can be placed at the curb of your home or residence on your regular garbage/recycling day for pick-up. In certain cases, a special collection can also be arranged.
Spring Clean-Up Week Kick-Off Event
Saturday, April 23 9 am - 1 pm
Gettting involved in the Spring Clean-Up Week is a great way to show your civic pride! Together, we can build a cleaner and greener Cornwall!
If you're a student or a teacher you can get your school involved. It's a great way to learn about the importance of being environmentally conscious. You can challenge other grades or schools, and it also allows high school students to add experience to their resume as part of their community volunteer hours.
You can also get your workplace involved or if you're a business owner you can sponsor a team, a project or target an area you feel is important. You can also donate prizes, clean-up supplies or celebrate your employees participation with a lunch, or even have a friendly challenge with surrounding or competing businesses!
By registering you become eligible for some great prizes, such as:
Check out the chart at the bottom of this page to see a list of teams and individuals that have already registered and the locations they plan to clean during Spring Clean-Up Week!
You can choose to join a team already cleaning the area if the area is large enough or you can select an original location that no one else has registered yet. Be sure to register early if you would really like to participate in a particular area!
We strongly suggest using gloves, black standard garbage bags. Bright clothing is encouraged and don't forget to bring water and sunscreen!
If you require supplies, there will be garbage bags and gloves available to pick up at the Spring Clean-Up Week Kick Off Event on Saturday, April 23rd, from 9 am to 1 pm in the municipal parking lot on Montreal Road (next to the Cornwall Community Police Service east end station).
The safety of your team and yourself is important.
Please do not attempt to clean or lift any items you are unsure of! Here are a few additional safety tips:
Garbage can be taken to one of the temporary waste bins that will be set up for the week or it can be put out to the curb on your regular garbage/recycling collection day.
Temporary waste bins will be in place at the following locations:
Please note that hazardous waste should not be placed in the bins. Toxic materials can only be accepted at the Landfill site on specified Household Hazardous Waste Days.
There will be a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day taking place during Spring Clean-Up Week, on Wednesday, April 27th, from 7:30 am to 4 pm. For more information on Household Hazardous Waste Days, please click here.
If you encounter items that are unsafe or difficult to move, please leave it in place and contact us the details.
