Mission Statement

Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and as Vancouverites we all take pride and responsibility in keeping it spectacular by not littering and looking at ways to reduce waste and recycle.

While the City helps to keep streets clean through street sweeping, graffiti removal and more, all residents can play a role in our neighbourhoods by participating in the Neighbourhood Cleanup Party or Adopt-a-Block programs!  By cleaning up garbage, removing graffiti and preventing dumping, you help our neighourhoods and business districts remain vibrant and thriving.

By participating in our litter cleanup programs, you can help reduce litter and support a healthy, vibrant and clean Vancouver.
