Keeping our community beautiful is a year-round task, but the spring presents a great opportunity to start fresh by cleaning up the community around us. With that in mind, the Town of Orangeville is inviting residents to come together in celebration of the fourth annual Provincial Day of Action on Litter by working together to clean our community.  

On May 9, 2023, the Town and the Province of Ontario encourage those living and working in Ontario to help raise awareness of the impacts of litter on our environment and to take part in helping clean up litter around their communities. 

“We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful community with residents who have a great deal of pride in our spaces,” said Councillor Tess Prendergast, chair of the Sustainable Orangeville Committee. “Together, we can show our passion for Orangeville by committing to helping clean up the litter and brightening our Town as spring brings back the bright colours and green spaces we all enjoy so often.”

Here are some ways you can participate: 

• Arrange a neighbourhood or community park litter cleanup. The Town of Orangeville provides items like gloves and garbage bags, as well as instructions on where litter can be disposed of. Contact [email protected] to find out more. 

• Join community cleanup initiatives that are happening locally to clean up roads, trailways, and parks in town:
