Litter Reduction Charter and Virtual Tool

​The City of Brampton is embarking on a goal to become Canada’s first litter-free city and is leading several initiatives to achieve this. Building on its inaugural Litter Reduction Forum last fall, Brampton’s Community Safety and Well-Being Office Litter Reduction Working Group is collaborating on two new initiatives, Brampton’s Litter Reduction Charter and a new Litter Reduction Virtual Tool.

Brampton’s new Litter Reduction Charter is a resource to foster community participation to beautify Brampton by eliminating litter. As the City continues to finalize the goals of the Litter Reduction Charter, starting on April 20, community members are invited to provide input and feedback during the community consultation phase.

In addition, on April 20, the City is launching its new Litter Reduction Virtual Tool. This tool will allow residents to track their cleanup efforts by reporting the area they have visited and the amount of litter they have collected. Through this tool, residents can share their results to challenge other neighbourhoods to undertake their own cleanup efforts to keep Brampton clean.

Additional details are coming soon to brampton.ca/communitysafety​.
