Make Your Neighborhood Shine: Sign up For the Mayor's Spring Cleanup

Press Release

Spring is near! Let’s sweep away the dust and grime of winter and make our neighborhoods sparkle by signing up for Mayor Catherine E. Pugh’s Spring Cleanup. This year’s Spring Cleanup will be held Saturday, April 29, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Communities can start preparing for spring cleaning by calling 311 to register. To participate in this year’s Cleanup, groups should organize now and provide their cleanup location(s) and anticipated numbers of participants when calling 311 to sign up. Registered communities will receive bags to help with their cleanup efforts.

This is the City’s 18th annual spring cleaning event, which encourages neighbors from throughout the City to work together to sweep, rake, and plant.

Residents participating in the Mayor’s Spring Cleanup can earn credits toward their stormwater fee. Representatives from registered communities can pick up forms needed to apply for the stormwater credit when they come to collect bags for their cleanups.
