PITCH-IN Week

2020 is the 53rd 49th annual PITCH-IN Week. The program is the largest environmental improvement campaign in Canada. It is a partnership between municipalities, the media, industry and the public. In total, 1,000,000+ Canadians participated in the program annually cleaning up over 5 million pounds of litter. The annual PITCH-IN Week campaign results are incorporated in the world-wide Clean-Up the World statistics. This Campaign, of which PITCH-IN CANADA is a founding participant, was started in 1990 and is supported by the UNEP (United Nations Environment Program).
