Schedule 32

Reducing litter is a priority in Ontario.

All Ontarians are encouraged to pick up litter that they encounter in public places, including waterways. Individuals can undertake actions to reduce litter either on their own initiative or in conjunction with groups organized by entities, such as school communities, municipalities or businesses. Ontarians are also encouraged to educate themselves about, and maintain their awareness of, laws in Ontario with respect to littering.

To raise awareness of the importance of a clean environment and of not littering, it is appropriate to proclaim an annual Provincial Day of Action on Litter.
