Participating in a community clean-up project

Spring is the best time to organize a community or neighborhood cleanup project before grass and weeds have a chance to hide trash and make retrieval more difficult.

Neighborhood cleanups are usually organized by neighborhood associations. Other community groups who might organize or help with a cleanup include:

  • Non-profit organizations Schools
  • Community Colleges and Universities (conservation, environmental, service clubs, etc.)
  • Youth groups such as 4-H clubs or Boy/Girl Scouts
  • Churches
  • Juvenile and adult probation/community service programs
  • General public

Find some helpful tips for organizing a successful neighborhood cleanup event.
