Put Waste in the Right Place
What is the Day of Action on Litter?
An annual event to bring attention to the impact waste and litter has on our environment and what we can do to stop it.
The Provincial Day of Action on Litter is celebrated on the second Tuesday of May each year in Ontario.
The next Provincial Day of Action on Litter is May 9, 2023.
If you live and work in Hamilton, putting waste in the right place is the same when you're out and about as it is when you're at home.
Help keep valuable recyclables out of our one and only landfill. Water bottles, pop cans and juice cartons are a few of the containers that can be recycled.
Make sure candy wrappers, coffee cups & lids, cigarette waste and fast food containers, like Styrofoam and black plastic, go in the garbage and don’t end up as litter in our beautiful parks, trails and roadways.
Put waste in the right place!
