The Town of Aurora is holding its annual community cleanup event to help keep our beautiful community litter-free. Although the cleanup will not be the same without a large meet up like last year, residents can still do their part to help cleanup the Town.

“Our residents are very environmentally conscious and they care about protecting our green spaces and landscapes. This year our cleanup will look a bit different but we will all be working towards the same outcome, keeping Aurora looking clean, beautiful and litter-free,” says Aurora Mayor Tom Mrakas.

The cleanup will be held over two days, Saturday, July 25 and Sunday, July 26.

You can participate by following the steps below:

  1. Sign up here to participate and receive a cleanup kit (while supplies last). The kit includes, two garbage bags, one clear recycling bag, one pair of nitrile gloves and safety tips.
