Oakville participating in #CleanCanadaTogether challenge

The Town of Oakville’s annual Clean Sweep is set for this Friday, April 21, 2017. The popular event is a great way to get together with friends and family to clean up around your school, business, neighbourhood or park. Your 20 minutes makes a big difference in keeping Oakville beautiful!

To recognize Canada’s 150th anniversary, Oakville will compete against Brockville, Edmonton, Hamilton, Mississauga, Nova Scotia, Toronto, Vancouver, Vaughan and Winnipeg to see who can clean up the most litter. Participants are encouraged to share photos of their cleanup on social media using #CleanCanadaTogether.

Register online to get your free bags courtesy of GLAD, along with gloves to help with your cleanup. Make sure to choose your pickup location and date, and your supplies will be ready for you at one of the following locations:

  • Town Hall, 1225 Trafalgar Road
  • Iroquois Ridge Community Centre, 1051 Glenashton Drive
  • Glen Abbey Community Centre, 1415 Third Line
  • River Oaks Community Centre, 2400 Sixth Line
  • Sixteen Mile Sports Complex, 3070 Neyagawa Boulevard
  • Queen Elizabeth Park Cultural and Community Centre, 2302 Bridge Road

You may place your GLAD garbage bags out on your regular garbage collection day, and please recycle what you can. Please ensure that you use the clearly marked GLAD garbage bags to collect litter on Clean Sweep day as only these GLAD bags will be collected by Halton Region free of charge above the three-bag limit.

The Oakville Clean Sweep event kicks off Earth Week. Residents are also encouraged to take part in the town-wide Annual Earth Week Clean Up on Saturday, April 22 from 9–11 a.m. hosted by the Oakville Community Centre for Peace, Ecology and Human Rights (OCCPEH).
