Annual Roadside Cleanup Program

Applications for the 2024 Roadside Cleanup are now closed.

Every year, non-profit organisations undertake the task of removing undesirable litter from designated roadside ditches while concurrently engaging in fundraising activities for their respective charitable endeavours. These collective endeavours contribute significantly to the enhancement of our community's aesthetic appeal.

How to apply

  • The application deadline will be April 26, 2024, and the cleanup typically begins in early May.
  • Applications must be accompanied by a formal letter endorsing the activity by the club, specifying the anticipated number of club participants, and acknowledging compliance with the MD of Taber stipulations.
  • Applicants will receive notification of the designated road(s) to be cleaned no later than one week prior to the commencement date.

What's involved
