Spring Cleanup

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic gatherings are not permitted. You can participate in this project if you wear a mask and gloves. Please remember to respect physical distancing.

Walking through a park to reach your destination or for exercise is permitted provided you do not gather with others that do not live in your household.

Tanglewood-Hillsdale participates in the City of Ottawa’s Clean-Up the Capital. Our community association organizes residents, businesses, our church and students to make outings effective. Gloves, garbage bags, and pick-up poles are provided to volunteers by contacting 311. The Association and other member associations of the Federation of Citizens’ Associations for Ottawa promote this cross generation initiative to be kind to our environment.

This year Students of Redemer High school  will join members of our community at the Tanglewood community center on May 6th, 2020

Early birds can register on March 15th for GLAD Cleaning the Capital
Ottawa – The City of Ottawa is pleased to announce the annual GLAD Cleaning the Capital campaign will take place
from April 15 to May 15. Registration is available after March 15 .
Registration is quick and easy:
· Go to ottawa.ca/clean, or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401) to register for the clean-up. 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 clean-up 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 clean up 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 clean-up 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 clean-up 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.
