GLAD Cleaning the Capital opens registration

After the winter snow, frigid temperatures and ice, you can now turn your attention to the City of Ottawa’s 2019 GLAD Cleaning the Capital campaign, taking place from April 15 to May 15. Many Stittsville organizations and residents participate in this endeavour to beautify our community.

Registering is quick and easy.

  • Visit or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401) to register your cleanup. Our interactive map will show you which locations have already been claimed, and our online registration form will allow you to choose your own project site and indicate the cleanup supplies that you need.
  • Select a location, such as a park, ravine, shoreline, bus stop or pathway – any public area that requires litter pickup or graffiti removal.

Win prizes

Volunteers who register their cleanup project before Sunday, April 14 could win one of many early-bird prizes, donated by our generous sponsors. Volunteers who submit a final cleanup report by Friday, May 31 will be eligible for even more prizes.

The campaign is a city-wide event that brings together neighbours, communities and friends to help keep Ottawa clean and green. Last year alone, 75,639 volunteers collected 60,511 kilograms of litter at 1,306 cleanup events.

GLAD Cleaning the Capital is also an excellent way for high school students to earn their community volunteer hours.
