Cleaning The Capital 2023

Updated: Mar 29, 2023

From the City of Ottawa


Note from Ward 3: The councillor's office will have an additional incentive for some lucky participants in the clean up the capital programme!

Cleaning the Capital is a citywide cleanup that occurs in the spring and fall of every year,

bringing Ottawa residents together as a community to help clean litter from our public

spaces. Cleaning the Capital is an exciting opportunity for residents to show their civic

pride and take an active role in helping maintain a beautiful city.


How It Works!

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 already been chosen for cleanup projects.

Participants can choose from a variety of public spaces to clean, including green spaces

and community parks, roadsides, shorelines, or even areas around bus stops. Cleanup

kits, which include garbage bags, recycling bags, paper bags, and gloves, will be made

available for pick-up by registrants at one of ten City of Ottawa facilities across the city.

This year, based on survey data from participants and demand, we are including three

additional pick-up locations for cleanup kits!

Celebrating 30 years!

2023 marks the 30th anniversary of Cleaning the Capital. Established in 1994, the

Cleaning the Capital program has been leveraging corporate sponsorship and resident

engagement to keep our city clean and green. Since the program’s inception, over 1.4

million volunteers have participated in nearly 30,000 cleanup projects throughout the city.

As a result, approximately 1,000,000 kilograms of waste has been removed from our

public spaces by many participating individuals, student groups, community associations,

businesses, friends, and families. The City is grateful for the long-term commitment of

many volunteers who have continued to participate in cleanup projects every year and

have dedicated their time to keeping our public spaces clean and enjoyable for all

residents
