Volunteers place litter into a trash bag in a residential neighbourhood

Neighbourhood cleanup programs

Our volunteer-based neighbourhood cleanup programs give residents and businesses an opportunity to help keep their city clean and contribute to Vancouver’s zero waste goals.

By cleaning up our environment, we can reduce litter that could otherwise harm wildlife and pollute our land and waterways. 

Our team is dedicated to supporting your cleanup initiatives. There are several ways to participate in a litter cleanup.
