Clean It Up! Registration Begins for the Annual Mayor’s Spring Cleanup
Wednesday Feb 12th, 2020
In conjunction with Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young’s "Clean It Up!" Campaign, comes the Mayor’s Spring Cleanup. This annual cleaning opportunity gives residents a chance to pitch-in and clean up their neighborhoods.
Acting Public Works Director Matthew W. Garbark has announced that registration for the Mayor’s Spring Cleanup will begin on Tuesday, February 18, 2020. Community groups, civic groups and resident volunteers should begin to prepare now by selecting cleanup location(s) and organizing volunteers to participate.
The Mayor’s Spring Cleanup is Saturday, April 18, 2020. To register, community leaders should call 311. This is a big, super-cleaning event with neighborhoods coming out to clean all across Baltimore City.
When calling 311, it is important that you tell us how many volunteers you will have and provide your cleaning locations. Registered communities will receive trash bags to help with their cleaning efforts, and DPW will collect debris from identified locations.
Participants in the Mayor’s Spring Cleanup can earn credits toward their stormwater fee. Certificates and forms for the stormwater credit can be picked up by registrants when they come to collect bags for their cleanups.
The Mayor’s Spring Cleanup is an annual tradition. Cleaning takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on cleanup day, April 18, 2020. Communities are encouraged to register early. Cleanup registration ends Thursday, April 9, 2020.
The Mayor’s Spring Cleanup is another tool in the City’s cleaning arsenal. Already, under the Mayor’s "Clean It Up!" Campaign, DPW has pledged to eliminate the backlog of key 311 cleaning service requests including, street, alley and vacant lot cleaning by April 1, 2020. Initiatives under the Clean It Up! Campaign include Community Pitch-In, expansion of the Care-A-Lot Program and an expansion of the Small Haulers Program.
