2018 marks the 25th year of the GLAD Cleaning the Capital Campaign!

The GLAD Cleaning the Capital Campaign is a citywide cleanup that occurs in the spring and fall of every year. Residents come together as a community and combine efforts to make our city clean and green. Since 1994, more than one million volunteers have participated in more than 20,000 cleanup projects throughout the city. As a result, an estimated 1,000,000 kilograms of waste has been removed from our public spaces.

Cleaning the Capital is an exciting way for residents to foster community pride by cleaning up their parks, bus stops, woodlots, ravines, shorelines and pathways, while enjoying the outdoors and ensuring that Ottawa stays clean, green, and graffiti and litter-free.

This year, HMBCA is excited to work with our neighbours to clean up our parks

  • Half Moon Bay Park
  • Lamprey Park
  • River Mist Park
  • Regatta Park
  • Freshwater Parkette Park
  • River Run Park
  • Guinness Park
  • Tucana Park
