Anti-litter and Community Safety Initiatives

Clean and Safe Community 

The Town of Milton encourages residents as well as employees working in the community to eliminate litter to preserve and enhance Milton's natural beauty. With your help, we can ensure your outdoor experiences in the community are positive in keeping with the Town's goal of a "safe, livable and healthy community."

Nassagaweya Rural Road Clean-up Day

The Nassagaweya Community Consultation Committee is holding its Annual Road Clean-up Day and is asking for volunteers to help pick up roadside litter (not household garbage).

The Town of Milton and Region of Halton supply garbage bags, vests and dumpsters. Volunteers are needed to put the garbage in bags; volunteers with pick-up trucks would be appreciated to help bring garbage bags to the dumpsters. High school students looking for community service hours are most welcome.

Good Neighbours Community Day

Want to help out a neighbour by doing a good deed? You're invited to participate in Milton's Annual Good Neighbours Day. 

Teams of volunteers are needed to spend a few hours in the morning helping senior citizens or individuals by completing simple tasks. Jobs include washing windows, helping with yard work or participating in clean-up activities of waterways, parks or roadsides in Milton.

Over the past 26 years, approximately 700 volunteers, including adults and youth have participated in Good Neighbours Community Day. Local businesses, Rotary Club of Milton, RCMP and the Town of Milton have also provided support for the event.
