Giving back to the community feels great. What feels even better is giving back while enjoying the beautiful fall weather outside.

You can have a chance to do just that now that the City of Brampton has kicked off its Fall Harvest Clean-up Campaign, which runs from October 1 to 31. Residents can help clean up the city’s parks and green spaces, which helps Brampton really shine.

The Harvest Clean-up Campaign was launched in wake of the success of the Spring Clean-up, which boasted 43,000 participants who cleaned over 70 parks and 113 school yards, and removed over 2,500 bags of litter.

The clean-up is for individuals, families, friends, businesses, school groups and community organizations including religious groups, to participate. 

Your efforts will go toward the city’s achieving its goals in the municipal environmental master plan, as part of Brampton Grow Green, which launched in 2014. The initiative supports residents, businesses and communities as they come together to achieve a healthy liveable city.  

Participants are encouraged to register at the city’s website here, and pick dates and locations. Registration ensures you and your team will be provided with free clean-up supplies and garbage pick-up, like gloves and bags.

Want to share the postable moments you snap during the event with the rest of the city?  Send them over to parkscleanup@brampton.ca to be considered as part of the Brampton Parks & Forestry public photo collection. 

Participants are encouraged to use public transit where possible, to continue in achieving the Green City goals.
