Guidelines for anyone who wishes to get involved with litter cleanup:

  • Remember to wear gloves and closed-toe shoes, and use a litter picker to minimize your risk of injury.
  • If you find litter that is unsafe, including needles, call 403-342-8238 or email Our staff will respond as soon as possible.
  • If you discover an urban encampment (either active or vacant), please report to the police non-emergency line at 403-406-2200.
