Just two weeks away – citywide community litter Clean Up 2017 – taking place on Earth Day, April 22.

The event has grown to include 11,000 – 13,000 participants annually. BurlingtonGreen wants to reach a goal of 15,000 registrants for this year’s event.

BG Clean up

Last year these two worked in their neighbourhood. Where will you decide to work?

The organization has partnered with the City since 2011 to co-ordinate an annual event to keep our city clean. A total of 63,000 Burlington residents have participated in the six events led by BG since 2011.

It’s easy to participate:

1) form a group, big or small;

2) choose a clean-up area in Burlington (eg. field, park, creek, woodland, your schoolyard, etc.);

3) register your group on our website (link ), and reserve supplies if needed (bags, gloves);

4) do your clean up on April 22nd (schools and businesses may participate April 17-21).

BG proud grandparent - Sharman

The weather often determines how many people show up for the celebration after all the work is done. Last year Councillor Paul Sharman, on the left and BG board member Carol Gottlob selling raffle tickets attended.

With the work done everyone is invited to take part in the Eco-fair Celebration at Central Park/Library for a BBQ, eco-exhibitors, kids’ activities and live music.
