Roadside Cleanup

This year's Roadside Cleanup took place Saturday, May 13, 2017!  Thank you PEI. 

Contest is available until May 29 (See below for Pledge Sheet/Contest Details). 

Free cleanup bags will be available from IWMC facilites and head office.

On May 13 select a section of road or residential ditch in your area, collect litter, and simply take the bags to the roadside for pick up!  Next week government crews will pick up bags of collected garbage, so just your collected litter on the side of any road. You can use WI bags or regular clear plastic waste bags. Join in on the contest too!

WI logo labeled Cleanup Bags are available only at these locations:

·Brockton, New London, Murray River, Dingwells Mills, Wellington (The East Prince Waste Management Facility) and IWMC offices in Charlottetown (110 Watts Ave.) and Tignish (100 School St.).

(Bag pick up locations have been reduced this year as a pilot project to enhance monitoring of misused bags.)

If more convienant feel free to use your own clear plastic bags from home!
