As a business owner or employee, you can make a difference by volunteering time or resources for a cleaner, safer city.

Create a team of employees or co-workers and adopt a block to combat litter, or clean up a section of Edmonton's river valley. Give non-profit groups a hand by hiring them to pick up litter, or support an artist and fight graffiti by donating a wall.

These are just a few of the Capital City Clean Up programs here for you.

15 to Clean Challenge

Challenge yourself and others by taking 15 minutes to pick up some litter. Packages are available at Edmonton Public Libraries, while supplies last. Or, grab a bag and glove from home!

Business Supporting Community

Capital City Clean Up’s Business Supporting Community (BSC) initiative offers Edmonton-area companies a unique opportunity to fight litter while supporting local non-profit groups.

From May to August, these groups are paid a weekly rate to clean up litter around a one-block area of the company’s site. Businesses may also choose to have the group clean up another area, such as a playground, seniors’ residence or neighbourhood park.

Community Bin Grants

Each spring, dozens of Edmonton community groups apply for help to get rid of any large, bulky items cluttering up the back alleys, streets or other areas in their neighbourhoods. Under the Community Bin Grant Program, the City offers funds on a first-come, first-served basis that can be used for bin rentals (including the truck, driver and disposal costs) and truck rentals to drive through the area and collect large items.

Litter Clean Up Kit (formerly Adopt-A-Block and River Valley Clean Up)

Capital City Clean Up offers free litter clean up kits to Edmonton residents, businesses and community groups that are looking to pick up litter in their neighbourhood, City or River Valley parks, green spaces and around your business. Registration and litter clean-up kits will be available after March 10, 2017 at these participating locations. Please visit facility pages for location and operating hours before visiting.

Kits will be available until supplies last.
