Pop-what? Pop-up!
Clean-up!

Starting June 11th, Halton Environmental Network is excited to get YOU outside and enjoying our incredible green space this Summer with the Pop-Up Clean-Up initiative!

Made possible through the help of Dillon Consulting, we have introduced the Litterati app that will help measure and track litter picked up by Halton residents as they tackle the continuing waste problem in our green spaces and waterways.

Looking for volunteer hours? This a great opportunity for Halton youth to get outside and earn community involvement hours, but they can do so in a manner that abides by all provincial and local COVID-19 protocols, while improving their local environment, too.

Together, we can come together as a community to clean, protect and celebrate the green spaces we enjoy. Photograph, tag, clean and collect to do your part in being a community clean-up HERO! 

Email jaynie@haltonenvironment.ca if you have any questions.
