It’s spring and time to join the town’s Oakville Clean Sweep set for Friday, April 19 at 2 p.m. Take this opportunity to clean up around your home, park, trail, school and business. All it takes is 20 minutes to make a difference!
“Last year, over 8,000 people participated in the Oakville Clean Sweep program. That’s an amazing turn out and an excellent example of how this community takes care of our neighbourhoods and our environment,” Mayor Rob Burton said.
The Oakville Clean Sweep event kicks off the town’s spring cleanup and Earth Week events. To get your free gloves and bags courtesy of Glad, visit the Clean Sweep page and register. Choose your pickup location and date, and your supplies (one glove per person and one bag per five people) will be ready for you at one of the following locations:
After the cleanup, place collected bags out on your regular garbage collection day, and recycle what you can. If you think you’ll exceed the garbage bags per household limit, please call 905-845-6601 to make arrangements for garbage pickup.
Residents who cannot participate in the Oakville Clean Sweep cleanup day are encouraged to take part in the town-wide Earth Week cleanup on Saturday, April 20 from 9–11 a.m. hosted by the Oakville Community Centre for Peace, Ecology and Human Rights (OCCPEH). For more information on cleanup site locations (pdf, 4.1 MB) or to register contact OCCPEH at 905-849-5501, email@example.com or visit the OCCPEH website.
Over the coming months, the town will be leading other beautification initiatives including: loose leaf collection, running April 15 to 26 in designated areas; the Adopt-a-Road/Park/Trail campaign; Oakville Blooms — a sponsorship program of town medians and boulevards; and street and sidewalk sweeping using our eco-friendly street sweepers.
