Community Cleanup

Join the City’s Community Cleanup Crew!

Upcoming Community Cleanup Events
Join us as we kick off this new pilot program in the City. We encourage residents, schools, businesses, and community groups to get involved and help give our streets, lanes, parks and trails a good clean. Learn more and register below.

Love your City and parks? We do too! As more people spend time in our outdoor spaces, the demand to keep public spaces clean has grown. We need your help to keep the City of North Vancouver looking its best! 

Register to Volunteer

Looking to organize or volunteer for a community cleanup in the City? Here’s a step by step guide with everything you need to know to lead or join a litter cleanup in the City.

Step 1.

Visit the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup and register online.

     Though it says "shoreline cleanups", cleanups can take place anywhere in the City! The City of North Vancouver connects to the ocean through our vast array of creeks, streams, and even storm drains. Cleaning up litter in your neighbourhood, lane, streets, trails, and parks will prevent litter from entering waterways and the ocean.

Step 2.

Either lead or join a cleanup event at your desired location. Select from a list of available locations, or pin your own location and provide details.

Step 3.

Once you have a location, date and time, please email us at and we’ll arrange a spot where litter can be left and collected. We’ll also provide you with a set of gloves, bags, and litter collection tools.

Step 4.

After your litter-picking activity is complete, please consider visiting the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup website and registering what you picked up and how much. This helps us keep a national tally and contributes to annual reporting and statistics.
