Emery Village residents can Clean Toronto Together

By Sean Delaney

This spring, Toronto unites its community with the Clean Toronto Together initiative, a collective effort from April 19 to 22. It’s a call to action for residents, businesses, schools, and community groups, inviting everyone to roll up their sleeves for a massive citywide cleanup. Last year’s success, with more than 1,000 cleanup activities and the involvement of more than 70,000 participants, was a testament to the power of collective action. This year, we’re again focusing on beautifying parks, beaches, sidewalks, and public spaces.

On April 20 and 21, particular emphasis is placed on local parks and other public areas. Community groups, families, and individuals are encouraged to pick a spot that needs attention and dedicate up to an hour for cleanup. Registering for your cleanup is crucial to making your effort count and coordinating unique litter collection. Essential supplies include litter bags, gloves, trash grabbers (optional), hand sanitizer, and water/snacks. Sharing your progress on social media with the hashtag #cleantoronto spreads the word and inspires others to join in.

The city is committed to supporting all registered cleanups with safety tips and guidance, ensuring a positive and impactful experience for everyone involved. For those looking to learn more about how they can make a difference or for more engaging ideas on participation, the official Clean Toronto Together website offers a wealth of information.

This April, join forces with fellow Torontonians to contribute to a cleaner, greener Toronto, fostering a sense of community and environmental stewardship that extends far beyond the cleanup days.
