While many public health measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic still exist, the Spring Litter Clean-up program will run this year. All safety guidelines put in place by the Chief Medical Office must be followed by campaign participants. Learn more about current measures.
This is an activity typically carried out by groups of people. This program also shares materials between participant groups, including:
- personal protective equipment;
- signs; and
- storage bins.
The Transportation Maintenance Branch will collect applications and coordinate highway sections with applicants.
