Show your community pride and join us for our annual Spring
The City of Cornwall invites you make your neighbourhood litter
free this spring.
We all know as spring comes around an accumulation of winter's unsightly garbage gets revealed, stuck on fences, in ditches and along the roadway. Cornwall's Spring Clean-Up Challenge encourages community members to get involved in the City's
spring clean-up efforts by forming teams and cleaning up public spaces and parks. So form a team with friends, co-workers or
family members and take on the Spring Clean-Up Challenge!
How do you participate?
Below is an on-line registration form to register yourself or a
group. By registering you'll have a chance to win prizes.
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
Clean Up Areas
Here are the areas that have been selected by various groups/individuals to receive a clean up during the event:
- Benson Center / Second St W area
Here are some other areas that have been identified as being in need of a clean up:
- Saunders Dr
Cleaning kits will be available for pick up during the kick-off
event at the Cornwall Civic Complex parking lot, from
9 am to 1 pm. The kits will include garbage bags, gloves
and leaf and yard waste bags.
Why register my team or myself?
By registering you become eligible for a prize.
You can also receive a Certificate from the Mayor's Office
for your participation. It also gives us feedback on the
success of our Spring Clean-up Program.
Is someone already cleaning up the location I had in mind?
We will list areas that teams have chosen to clean up (see left).
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, leaf and yard waste bags and don't forget sunscreen!
Do you have any suggested safety tips?
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:
What do I do with the litter I collected?
As you collect the garbage please separate the recyclables from litter as much as possible. All garbage and recycling can either be brought to the Cornwall Civic Complex parking lot and put in the appropriate bin or put out on the curb at your home on regular garbage/recycling day. Toxic material can only be accepted at the Landfill site on Hazardous Waste Days. Tires will not be accepted, they must be dropped off at the Landfill site at a cost of $5.00 per tire.
Thanks for taking up the Challenge!
