London Clean & Green 2021

Every April for the past 25 years, London Clean & Green has been encouraging successful community clean-ups. This year, things are changing.

In an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, we will be having online events in April. Also, households can pick up trash when out for exercise (see details under Contact us). We are moving our 20-Minute London Makeover, Community-Wide Clean-Up and 12 Days of Cleaning to later this spring, if it is safe to do so. Neighbourhood or community clean-ups with more than one household are not permitted during the Stay-at-Home order.

Before you head out, make sure you’re following all local health guidelines from the Middlesex-London Health Unit and the Province’s Keeping Ontario Safe and Open Framework and declaration of emergency and provincewide stay-at-home order.
