Here’s a note from the City of Ottawa about their annual Cleaning the Capital campaign. If any Fairwinds neighbours are planning to participate this year, send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help spread the word!
Confirmed clean-up days:
- April 15, 9am-11am: Bandmaster Park (or 4pm-6pm if it’s raining in the morning)

The City of Ottawa is pleased to announce the annual GLAD Cleaning the Capital campaign will take place from April 15 to May 15. Early-bird registration is now available.
Registration is quick and easy:
- Go to ottawa.ca/clean, or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401) to register for the cleanup. The interactive map on our website will show you which locations have already been claimed, allow you to register your own project site and choose the cleanup supplies that you need.
- Select a location such as a park, ravine, shoreline, bus stop, pathway or any public area that requires litter pickup or graffiti removal.
Volunteers who register their cleanup project before April 14 have a chance to win one of many early bird prizes donated by our generous sponsors. Volunteers who submit a final cleanup report by May 31 will be eligible for more prizes.
GLAD Cleaning the Capital is a city-wide event that brings together neighbours, communities and friends to help keep Ottawa clean and green! Last year alone, 72,000 volunteers collected more than 58,182 kilograms of litter from 1,300 projects.
This is a great opportunity for families and friends to work together on community cleanup projects that help make Ottawa clean, green, graffiti-free and litter-free. Cleaning the Capital is also an excellent way for high school students to earn their community volunteer hours.
