Pitch-In Kingston community clean-up

Join the local effort to rid local neighbourhoods and parks of litter.

Pitch-In Kingston, an annual community clean-up event run by Sustainable Kingston, runs from April 22-29, 2019, and Queen's University encourages everyone on campus to get involved.
The goal of the event is to encourage community groups, individuals and businesses to celebrate the start of spring by cleaning up waste from local parks, streets, and shorelines. Last year, over 5,000 people in Kingston participated - and this year there are already over 6,600 registered. The local action is part of a Canada-wide Pitch-In effort.
Visit Sustainable Kingston's website to register your participation for free, and be sure to drop by Richardson Hall, Suite 352 or the Sustainability Office on the Rideau Building's second floor to pick up Pitch-In trash bags.
