Spring is in the air and the annual Cleaning the Capital Spring Campaign will proceed with registration starting March 15th.

With the gradual easing of COVID-19 restrictions, we are planning a more traditional campaign and will continue to reinforce public health and safety measures as these evolve. Participants can register their cleanup projects by using the online registration form available at ottawa.ca/clean or by calling 3-1-1. The registration form populates an interactive map, showing which locations have been chosen for cleanup projects. Cleanup kits, which include garbage bags and gloves, will be made available for pick-up by registrants at one of seven City of Ottawa facilities across the city.

This year marks the 29th year that the Cleaning the Capital program has been leveraging corporate sponsorship and resident engagement to keep our city clean and green. Cleaning the Capital program staff have delivered atypical campaigns throughout the global pandemic; regardless, nearly 11,000 participants registered 1,150 projects in 2021. Thanks to our city’s dedicated volunteers, as well as your ongoing support and program promotion in your wards and across our city, we look forward to even more successful campaigns in 2022.
