Yellow Fish Road™ program

The Yellow Fish Road™ Program educates the community about the dangers of dumping or flushing unwanted household hazardous wastes into the roadside and backyard storm drainage inlets called catch basins.

The Yellow Fish Road™ Program is a hands-on environmental project that allows people to make a difference by helping to educate community members about water pollution. Trout Unlimited Canada introduced the Yellow Fish Road Program™ in Calgary in May 1991. Since then, more than 220 communities across Canada, including Mississauga, have approved or implemented this water quality initiative.

The Yellow Fish Road™ Program volunteers in Mississauga paint yellow fish stencils on curbs next to roadside catch basins and distribute fish-shaped brochures to nearby households. The program is available Monday to Sunday, including evenings.
