Clean Up Langley Day

 

Help make the Township of Langley sparkle and shine by taking part in a community-wide litter pick up! Join us as we show our streets, parks, and trails a little love by pitching in to collect litter discarded in public spaces.

Families, individuals, businesses, and community groups are once again invited to help keep the Township beautiful by taking part in the 7th Annual Clean Up Langley Day. The event is part of CleanCanadaTogether , a nationwide campaign tackling litter in communities across Canada, and will run Saturday, April 28 from 9:00am – 2:00pm.

Participants can choose to work in a specific neighbourhood or park, and all necessary supplies - including gloves, safety vests, garbage pickers, and garbage bags - will be provided by the Township to those who register in advance.

Cleanups can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours, and are a great opportunity to make a difference, get to know your neighbours, and beautify your community at the same time.

Show your community a little love by registering for this year’s Clean Up Langley Day event by April 21.

FAQ

Registration is easy! Complete the online registration form below. You can choose to join an existing cleanup, work alone, or host a cleanup for others to join.

Check out the list of cleanups happening around the Township and decide if you want to join an existing cleanup or start a new one! If you want to host or conduct your own, look around your neighborhood to see where you might want to start. Is there a street, park, trail, or creek that could benefit from a little elbow grease? If so, rally your neighbours and friends and bring it back to its original splendor.

Garbage can be disposed of in two ways:

  • If you are hosting a cleanup and expect a fair bit of waste, place the garbage in a specific location after your cleanup. Sierra Waste will pick up the garbage if it is in a designated area (e.g., at the front of a park, end of a driveway, on the side of a road). Please ensure the material is not blocking or impeding traffic or site lines.
    Note: For this option, you’ll need to pre-determine where you will place the garbage and note this in your registration. Have the garbage ready for the hauler to pick up by 2:00pm.
  • If you are conducting your own cleanup and you receive municipal garbage pick up, you can place small amounts outside with household garbage. Sierra Waste will pick up garbage from your cleanup if it is placed beside your garbage cart on collection day. Please ensure the garbage collected from the cleanup is put in the yellow bags provided in your supply kit upon registration and the logo is visible from the street. If you do not receive municipal garbage collection, leave the waste in a visible location by the road and request a pick up by filling out a Clean Up Report, emailing adopt@tol.ca, or giving us a call at 604-532-7300.

The Township will provide volunteers who register in advance with:

  • Disposable gloves
  • Safety vests
  • Garbage pickers (limited quantities)
  • Yellow garbage bags

Cleanups can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours. All groups should finish by 2:00pm. This will give the hauler time to collect the garbage.

Share our event poster , our event listing, or our social media posts with your neighbours, friends, family, schools, and hobby groups. Need a few printed posters? Contact us at adopt@tol.ca.

Hosting a cleanup is easier and more fun than you think! You get to spend quality outdoor time with your friends (and maybe even make some new ones), help nip litter in the bud, and inspire others to take on cleanup initiatives regularly. Still need more convincing? Check out our three great reasons on why you should host a team on Clean Up Langley Day.

As a host, you get to lead your team and organize your crew’s efforts. But don’t worry – we’re here to help you along the way. Once we process your registration, we'll post your organization's name and cleanup location, inviting others to join your group. When volunteers sign up to join your cleanup crew, we’ll let you know. We'll also ensure you have enough cleanup supplies, signage, and provide you a list of who to expect on Clean Up Langley Day. On the day of the event, your hosting duties will include manning a welcome station for the volunteers joining your cleanup, handing out supplies, outlining safety guidelines, and suggesting cleanup routes. You’ll also place all collected garbage at the designated pick-up spot at the end of the event.
