Spring Cleanup Events Postponed to Waste Reduction Week October 19-25, 2020

Thursday, May 7, 2020

We have now reached a critical time in our fight against COVID-19. Every step taken by the province and every effort made by each of us to practice physical distancing are the key to our success as a province to stop the spread of this virus. We know that following the COVID-19 outbreak Ontarians will be eager to return outdoors; this will be a great opportunity to reconnect with nature.

The Provincial Day of Action on Litter will be May 12, 2020. To mark this occasion this year, we will be focusing on raising awareness of the impacts of waste in the environment, and what actions each and every Ontarian can take to prevent, reduce and divert waste, right at home instead of hosting community cleanups.  

Cleanup events should not take place this month. To support the effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 and help keep Ontarians safe, the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks has postponed public and corporate cleanups until later in the year during Waste Reduction Week, which takes place October 19-25, 2020.
