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!
