City seeks input for future community cleanup initiatives

November 27, 2020

The City is seeking resident input as it develops future community cleanup initiatives. The initiatives, aimed at reducing and preventing litter and illegal dumping, will be added to existing City programs and plans and focus on community involvement and participation.

“Keeping our public spaces clean and free of litter and debris is a big job. We know our community values and takes pride in these spaces, which is why we’re asking for input on future initiatives to keep them clean,” says Bill Linnen, Director, Public Works. 

He notes several City programs in place that support keeping Kingston beautiful, including street sweeping, the enforcement of litter-related bylaws and the collection of waste from receptacles in parks and downtown streets.

Starting today, and until Dec. 16, you can offer your input about future community cleanup initiatives by completing a brief survey at The results from the survey will be reviewed by Public Works staff and inform new initiatives.

“We all need to do our part to keep our streets, parks and neighbourhoods clean, safe, and livable. It really is a community investment.”
