Canal Cleanup Background 

The Canal Cleanup Day is an annual event in which the citizens of Cape Coral venture out by
land or by boat to remove litter and debris from the Cape's waterways and waterfronts. They
find all kinds of things, from cigarette butts and fishing line to TVs and air conditioner parts.
The goal of the Cleanup Day is to involve people, allowing them to take pride in the community
and to form connections with other like-minded citizens. We also hope to reduce the amount
of debris entering our canals by bringing attention to the problem and educating the public
on litter's harmful effects.

The Canal Cleanup is a partnership between the City of Cape Coral and Keep Lee County Beautiful. The
first Canal Cleanup was held in March of 2008. Stay tuned for details on the next Canal Cleanup Day!
