Did you know?

PITCH-IN Week began in 1967 with a handful of concerned citizens picking up harmful debris along the shores of Vancouver Island. In 2019 over 850,000 people committed to participating in their local neighbourhoods from St. John’s, Newfoundland to Port Alice, British Columbia, and collectively removed over 5.65 million pounds of litter!

During PITCH-IN Week you can register your clean up, pick up supplies (while they last) and have staff collect your clean up garbage.  

To register your clean up please fill in this online form.  

Pitch In Week is now an active year long program with a focus surrounding Earth Day, volunteers take part in locally organized clean ups to support clean and #litterfree communities!
