GLAD 2017 Fall Campaign

August 15, 2017 – The City of Ottawa is pleased to announce the annual GLAD Cleaning the Capital fall campaign will take place from September 15 to October 15. Early bird registration is now available.

 

Registration is quick and easy:

 

  • Go to ottawa.ca/clean, or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401) to register for the cleanup. The interactive map on our website will show you which locations have already been claimed, allow you to register your own project site and choose the cleanup supplies that you need.
  • Select a location such as a park, ravine, shoreline, bus stop, pathway or any public area that requires litter pickup or graffiti removal.

 

Win prizes

 

Volunteers who register their cleanup project before September 14 have a chance to win one of many early bird prizes donated by our generous sponsors. Volunteers who submit a final cleanup report by October 31 will be eligible for more prizes.

 

GLAD Cleaning the Capital is a city-wide event that brings together neighbours, communities and friends to help keep Ottawa clean and green! Last year alone, 72,000 volunteers collected more than 58,182 kilograms of litter from 1,300 projects.

 

This is a great opportunity for families and friends to work together on community cleanup projects that help make Ottawa clean, green, graffiti-free and litter-free. Cleaning the Capital is also an excellent way for high school students to earn their community volunteer hours.

Who:               The City of Ottawa has retained the contractor, Ottawa Greenbelt Construction Limited, to complete the work.

During the road closure, residents on Deer Park Road can access their community from Meadowlands Drive or Baseline Road.  A safe and accessible path of travel for all pedestrians will be maintained through and/or around the construction site.

 

On-Street Parking

During construction, on-street parking will be restricted on Deer Park Road within the vicinity of the construction area.

 

Construction Disruptions

The Contractor is assuming full responsibility for the construction work until the work is entirely complete. The Contractor will take every precaution necessary to minimize interruptions to the everyday life of your family and/or operation of your business, but as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the work, such as delays and traffic detours when travelling through the construction zone, noise, dust and vibration. We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation.

Traffic & Parking By-law Survey

In September 2017, Council will receive a report regarding proposed adjustments to the Traffic and Parking By-law. Traffic Services is reviewing the general unsigned on-street parking regulations within city limits that permit parking for a maximum of 3 consecutive hours, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends and holidays. However, in response to a request at Transportation Committee from Councillor Monette to consider allowing on-street parking for longer than 3-hours on weekends and holidays, and as Directed by Chair Egli, we are engaging the public to provide feedback on this proposal. Transportation Services has developed an online survey which solicits residents’ opinion on a proposal to change the general on-street parking regulations to allow parking for 6 consecutive hours instead of 3 hours between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekends and holidays. The survey is now available at On-Street Parking Survey.
