Earth Day

Earth Day is a worldwide day of environmental activism that has been celebrated annually on April 22 since 1970. To celebrate our successes to date and raise awareness for how our community can contribute to ongoing environmental initiatives, this year the City of Brantford is hosting a community wide clean up event, tree giveaway for residents, and continuing the important conversation around Climate Change.

Let’s Clean Our City!

On Sunday, April 21 and Monday, April 22, 2024 residents are invited to Clean our City by registering online and collecting litter in their neighbourhoods and around the community. Free cleanup kits are available to those who register by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 19. Participants are encouraged to submit photos to the Let’s Clean Our City Photo Contest for the chance to win prizes! #CleanBrantford
