Keeping our neighbourhood and school areas clean is easy when everyone gets involved.

Teachers or students can lend a hand, make a video or learn about litter and wildlife. Make a difference in your community with these Capital City Clean Up programs.

Everyday tips for students:

  • Use reusable containers for lunches and snacks
  • When outside for recess, make sure all your empty snack packages makes it into a garbage can
  • Pick up litter when you see it and put it in a garbage can

Call 311 to report graffiti or litter you can't pick up.

Capital City Clean Up School Programs

Junior Wildlife Ambassadors

Capital City Clean Up is pleased to partner with WILDNorth. This innovative program teaches children how they can make a difference in their environment.

Elementary students become Junior Wildlife Ambassadors after learning how to minimize their impact on the wildlife in their area. The four free presentations are designed to complement each grade’s curriculum. These include the following:

  • Grade 3: Life Cycles, Wildlife and My Community
  • Grade 4: Litter, Wildlife and My Community
  • Grade 5: Wetlands, Wildlife and My Community
  • Grade 6: Trees, Wildlife and My Community

Presentation times fill up quickly.

To book your presentation, email education@wildlife-edm.ca or phone 780-433-0884.

Schoolyard Clean Up

Every spring after the snow melts, school grounds in Edmonton need a little extra attention to make sure they’re clean and safe. From April to June each year, Capital City Clean Up offers elementary, junior and senior high students an exciting program that lets them show school pride and share the responsibility of a cleaner community.

Last year, 104 Edmonton schools and over 24 thousand students registered with Capital City Clean Up’s Schoolyard CleanUp program to help put litter in its place.

  • Once your registration has been confirmed, your school will receive bags and gloves to assist with your clean up efforts
  • Submit your stats to be entered to win a classroom pizza party (up to 30 kids)
