Earth Day Spring Cleanup

Due to the forecasted thunderstorms we will be postponing the cleanup event until Tuesday, April 26th from 9-noon.

Waterloo encourages individuals, groups, and business to make a positive contribution and show their civic pride by participating in Earth Day Spring Cleanup on April 22, 2022.  Residents are encouraged to work individually or organize teams of co-workers, club or church members, or friends and family to collect litter and beautify areas of their choosing or an area assigned by the City. 

Earth Day 2022Individuals or teams interested in the cleanup should register with thSavee City of Waterloo Engineering Department ( Registered teams will receive reflective vests, trash bags, and trash collection at designated locations provided by the City.  Clean up activities will be held from 9am to noon that day.

Waterloo Public Works-Sanitation Department has identified high-visibility areas of the city to be targets. Organizers hope that this event will have a long term and continuing impact by encouraging residents to take ownership by monitoring and maintaining their surroundings all year long.

 “I urge Waterloo businesses, service organizations, churches, and individuals to lend a hand in cleaning up the litter left behind by the winter thaw and spring winds,” says Mayor Quentin Hart. “This is a great opportunity to show your community pride and enjoy time in the great outdoors!  Let’s do this Waterloo!”
