Get involved in #yyccleans year round
The Pathway and River Cleanup may be over, but help is always needed. Here are some ways you can get involved in keeping Calgary clean:
• Always pick up and properly dispose of your garbage, including pet waste and cigarette butts.
• Organize a community or school cleanup using our free The Litter Cleanup Kits (TLC Kits) available at nine city locations.
• Attend a P.U.P.P.Y. event to help pitch in and pick up in our city’s off-leash areas.
