What is London Clean & Green ?

The City of London and its partners in London Clean & Green have established this website to help Londoners and London-area businesses keep our city Clean & Green.

London Clean & Green coordinates the work of various organizations in cleaning up London parks, roadways, business sites, schoolyards, and the Thames River during the spring period.


 
What is London Clean & Green Community Cleanup Day?

In 2014, April 26 will be the day when thousands of Londoners will work together to help 'clean and green' neighbourhoods and parks around our city. We will pick up litter, remove graffiti and plant trees. Numerous designated meeting sites have been identified where volunteers can register, receive information and instruction, and get equipped with garbage bags. Other locations can be added anywhere in the city by registering through the City’s website and students can earn community service hours as part of their high school commitment. Please join us! When you do, you can be proud of being part of a growing trend across Ontario, Canada and North America that happens every April.

What is the Thames River Clean Up?

This is a parallel clean up event, also on April 26 and is hosted by Upper Thames River Conservation Area & NOAH Conservation Club. Volunteers pick up garbage along the Thames River and its tributaries. If you would like to participate in this event contact the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority Clean Up.

London Clean and Green Background Information

London Clean and Green originated about fourteen years ago as a single day event aimed at gathering volunteers to clean up the garbage and graffiti in London's downtown core. Over the years the event grew to include more volunteers, to cover a larger area, and involve a variety of organizations.

London Clean and Green welcomes and appreciates the effort that any individual or organization would like to give to improve or preserve the environmental wellbeing of our community. However, London Clean and Green believes in positive promotion and not advocacy or activism. Because of this we ask that anyone wishing to participate with the London Clean and Green be: organizing an event that promotes positive environmental stewardship OR providing financial or in-kind (materials, services, volunteers, etc.) donations to an existing event.

If you would like to have your environmental event included among the area's most successful, if you would like to donate some well needed materials to a good cause, or if you want to offer your own time to help improve our environment, consider joining the London Clean and Green team.

How Can I Get Involved?

Easy! Read the Registration Information and register for a designated neighbourhood site or go to the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority web site and sign-up for a designated Thames River site.

We Need To Hear From You

Whatever your choice, please be sure to register. Registering helps to ensure your local clean up is a success and that you have the support of London Clean & Green. Registering helps to measure our success in terms of number of volunteers, areas cleaned up and the amount of garbage collected. We also want to be able to acknowledge your efforts.

When you register, London Clean & Green will provide the appropriate number of garbage bags for your group. (Bags are available only while supplies last, so register early.)

Thank you for helping us help the environment.
