Spring into Clean

Get involved and keep Barrie beautiful! This annual project occurs during Earth Week and is designed to clean up our community, while raising levels of environmental awareness and social responsibility, through active participation in one of our four "Spring Into Clean" events.

This page is in reference to the community clean-up event, “Spring Into Clean”, only. Any residents interested in a community clean-up outside of the “S.I.C.”  timeframe are asked to contact the Parks Department at 705-739-4255.

2019 Waterfront cleanup event rescheduled for May 25

The City of Barrie has rescheduled the waterfront cleanup event, part of the annual Spring into Clean campaign, to ensure residents have the opportunity to take part in this important community event that helps keep our waterfront clean.  ​

The event, which usually takes place in April, was postponed due to inclement weather. The waterfront cleanup will now take place on Saturday, May 25, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., at the Centennial Park and Beach main pavilion area (Lakeshore Dr. between Bayfield St. and Tiffin St.). 

No registration is required for this event. Residents are invited to bring their family, friends and neighbours to help clean up the City's waterfront area. Bags and gloves will be provided.
