Celebrate Pitch-In Week Canada & Help Keep Your Community Litter-Free.

Pitch-In Week provides an opportunity for communities across Canada to work together to collect litter and recyclables from around their community. Challenge your business, school, neighbourhood, family and friends to PITCH-IN and clean up our commercial areas, wildlife areas, parks and ravines, schools and neighborhoods, highway/roadside, sports fields, waterways, nature & recreational trails.

2018 will once again see the SLRD staff challenging other employees from our member muncipalities to a 20-Minute Makeover Clean up Blitz Challenge. In 2017, over 80 people managed to collect 1250 lbs of litter clogging our ditches, water ways and parks.

Follow the 2018 events on our Instagram feed zeroinonwaste_slrd and Facebook page ZERO in on WASTE SLRD to see who this year's winner will be.
