  • If you know where you would like to clean up, please indicate on that list.

 Where to Clean Up

  • Individuals often choose to clean up around their neighbourhood. 
  • We recommend that you check your site the night before or earlier in the day to  make sure it still needs picking up.  We cannot control where other people choose to pick up litter.
  • If you are from outside our town limits, check with your municipality to see if they are participating in Pitch-In this year.  They may have bags for you, and may be able to pick up the filled bags or accept them at your municipal transfer site.

After the Cleanup

  • Township staff will be collecting filled Pitch In bags from the roadside.
  • If your filled bags are not picked up within two days, please call us with their location  so we can let the town know to pick them up. 
  • Please let us know how you did on the response form!
