Every year around Earth Day we invite individuals and groups to come out and clean up litter not only in City parks, but also on trails, streets, and green spaces.

Sign up as an individual or group to come out and clean up litter not only in City parks, but also on trails, streets, and green spaces. Have a neighbourhood park you love? Sign up to give it a clean. Is there a particular trail your family enjoys to hike? Select it as your spot to remove litter form the environment.

You can register before April 12 at noon to receive a clean-up kit provided with support from NOVA Chemicals and to enjoy a barbecue hosted by the Rotary Club of Sarnia-Lambton After-Hours at Germain Park. Complete our registration form below to select your clean-up site and participate.
