Cleaning the Capital

Every spring and fall, Ottawa residents can help keep their neighbourhood looking great by signing up for Cleaning the Capital.  The City of Ottawa will provide supplies if you register your clean up here or call 311 to register.  Registration is open until April 30, 2022. 

After you do your clean up, if you fill out the report online, you can even win prizes for your efforts.  Once you register, you have until June 15th to submit your report.

Rally your neighbours or go solo to get Convent Glen and Orléans Wood looking ready for spring and summer enjoyment!
