Pitch-In Week

clean sweep

April 19 to 26, 2020

It's time for a spring cleaning!

The District of Squamish is once again taking part in Pitch-In Week, Canada's largest environmental improvement campaign. Pitch-In Week is a great opportunity for residents, students, or community groups to get together and clean up our community. 

Sign up individually or organize a group from your work or neighbourhood to do a clean-up. We welcome everybody to come out and meet your neighbours, and volunteer together to clean up part of our community. 

How to participate:

Registration for 2020 Community Cleanup days is now open! Roll-up your sleeves and sign up your team here.

How it works:

  • The District of Squamish will supply gloves, garbage bags and a tipping fee waiver for all registered cleanup events. 
  • After the clean up, full bags can be dropped off at the Squamish Landfill, free of charge. The tipping fee waiver must be presented at the landfill scale hut and is only valid the week of the event.
  • The District recommends sorting bottles and cans.These can be brought to the Bottle Depot or deposited in the appropriate bin at the Landfill.
  • Electronics such as televisions, peripherals and cords can be brought to the Squamish Bottle Depot to be recycled for free.
