litter clean up

Together. Keeping our City Clean.
Clean up litter in your community, visit a Big Bin Event, support a non-profit group, or explore our many other programs.

Citizens, community groups, schools and businesses work with Capital City Clean Up to make Edmonton sparkle. Litter Kits provided by the City help reduce the amount of litter in your community.

 Thank you for your interest in requesting litter supplies and keeping Edmonton a cleaner and more beautiful place. The Litter Kits Program is now closed for the 2022 season, and the program will re-open in early spring 2023. Check back in 2023, and we hope to see you again!

Schoolyard Clean Up

Every spring after the snow melts school grounds in Edmonton need a little extra attention to make sure they’re clean and safe.  Capital City Clean Up (CCCU) with the City of Edmonton (COE) offers elementary, junior, and senior high students a program that lets them show school pride and share the responsibility of a cleaner community.

Registered Volunteer Programs

Volunteers play an essential role in keeping the City of Edmonton safe and clean. Capital City Clean Up provides volunteers with the opportunity to make a meaningful impact with a minimal time commitment.   To volunteer, you must register, complete the online training, and sign up for the activity or event that you wish to participate in. Volunteers must be 15+ years old.  Sign up and view events.

Cigarette Litter


Beginning October 17, 2018, tobacco and cannabis smoking will be prohibited within 10 metres of doorways, windows, air intakes of buildings, patios and bus stops.  Discarding cigarette butts on the ground is littering and subject to a $250 fine under Bylaw 14614 . Please dispose of your butts responsibly.

Community Clean-Up Grant

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 Clean Up Grant Program, formerly known as the Community Bin Grant Program, the City offers funds on a first-come, first-served basis that can be used for bin and truck rentals, disposal costs, litter removal projects, and other initiatives that promote community cleanliness.
