Keep Markham Beautiful

Keep Markham Beautiful – all year long!

Help keep your neighbourhood clean and safe for everyone. Get a group together – friends, neighbours, coworkers and pick a park, walkway or any other public space that needs a cleanup.



  • GLAD® clear garbage bags, GLAD® blue tinted bags for recyclables

Material disposal:

  • Schools and businesses will use their own collection services
  • Individuals are asked to set out material on their scheduled collection day(Bagged recyclables accepted curbside for this program only)


  • Use small grocery bags for easier, individual collection
  • Keep recyclables separate from other waste (use blue tinted bag provided). Most litter is recyclable (coffee cups, aluminum cans, paper products)
  • Clear bags only - tinted or dark bags will not be collected
  • Recyclable materials, such as tires and scrap metal can be dropped off at any Markham Recycling Depot

Safety First:

  • Wear protective clothing
  • Pay attention to vehicles at all times
  • Be mindful not to damage spring plants - leaves and twigs should be left on the ground
  • Never pick up dangerous items (syringes and needles, etc.).
  • Report the location of these items at 905-477-5530 or through the Report a Problem function on the Access Markham mobile app

A big thank you to GLAD Canada who has sponsored Markham’s cleanup events for many years!
