Thank you for keeping our shorelines clean

Together, we had our most successful year to date in 2015, with more than 2,000 cleanups across the country. We hope you’ll join us again next year. Registration opens March 2016.


Why Cleanup?


Nearly 60,000 registrants cleaned 2,000+ shorelines across Canada in 2015, removing almost 180,000 kg of litter from more than 3,000 km of shoreline.

Shoreline Cleanup 101

When can I organize a cleanup? Year round, you choose the date and time.

Can I join a cleanup already organized? Absolutely! Look for the blue dots on our map.

Where can I clean up? Anywhere land connects to water. Lakes, rivers, streams, beaches, storm drains and more.

Who does cleanups? Anyone and everyone! Local citizens, schools, corporate groups, NGOs, Cadets, Girl Guides and Scouts, just to name a few.

Join us! Here’s why. Litter is bad for waterways. Cleanups get you outside and into your community while creating positive change and awareness on the trash we produce.
