Pitch-in Canada




Pitch-in Canada is a national non-profit organization founded in 1967 by several volunteers concerned about the proliferation of packaging and its effects on the land and marine environments. Today, Pitch-In Canada involves millions of volunteers in various action programs, from initiating recycling and composting programs to cleaning up and beautifying streams, wilderness and urban areas.

Pitch-in Canada Programs include the Canada Coastal Clean-Up, the National Marine Debris Surveillance Program, and Pitch-In Canada Week. Pitch-in Canada week is the largest and only multi-province environmental improvement/litter clean-up Campaign in Canada. Volunteer "Partners" participate in a wide range of Pitch-In Canada Week activities. The objectives of the Campaign include to: clean up, restore and beautify the environment by cleaning up litter and other garbage from urban, rural and wilderness areas and by initiating local projects such as habitat preservation and restoration and urban renewal activities, thereby promoting respect for Canada's natural and urban environments.
