Join us for Pitch-In Day! We invite everyone in the community to help keep Innisfil clean by collecting litter from road edges, public trails, parks and road ends. The Town of Innisfil Pitch-In Day Committee plans this annual event.

We ask that Pitch-In participants contact inquiry@innisfil.ca to let us know where they have left garbage bags with debris. From there, Operations staff will come to collect it. Thanks to everyone for helping keep Innisfil clean and green!
