Team Up to Clean Up is a year-round city-wide community cleanup program. This program provides all the tools you need to run a community cleanup including gloves, recycling bags and specially marked garbage bags. Approximately 25,000 volunteers participate in Team Up to Clean Up each year and invest more than 45,000 volunteer hours to help clean our community.
The program helps keep public places in your neighbourhood clean and safe for everyone. You can host a cleanup event on City property including parks, trails, alleyways, streets and parking lots.

Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup
The City of Hamilton is an official ‘Clean Shoreline Community’ with the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, a conservation partnership by Ocean Wise and WWF-Canada. You can help keep Hamilton’s shoreline litter free by cleaning up any area where land connects to water, including lakes, rivers, streams and even parks or schoolyards (near storm drains). Since 1994, there have been 19,400 cleanups that have collected more than 1.2 million kg of trash across Canada’s shorelines. Register your Team Up to Clean Up event with the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup to be a part of the national movement to keep our shorelines clean!
