Green Deer


Green Deer is Red Deer's city-wide spring cleanup program. Residents, groups and businesses take on the task of picking up litter and ensuring Red Deer is clean and green. Red Deerians don’t like litter. Most would never dream of littering, and an astounding number come forth each spring – individually, in groups, and as businesses – armed with pickers, gloves and bags, to clean up the trash and litter that have accumulated through the winter.

From April 13 to June 14, join neighbours, friends and coworkers in keeping Red Deer beautiful and healthy. Register for Green Deer today!

The importance of registering...

If you’re cleaning up your neighbourhood or favourite green space, please give us a call. People are encouraged to register so Green Deer organizers can distribute cleaning supplies, track the areas that have been cleaned and recognize volunteer work. Every group to register will automatically be entered into a draw to win a BBQ donated by Canadian Tire and a BBQ event hosted by KG Country & ZED 98.9.
