Most of us would probably agree that our city could stand a little sprucing up here and there (or, maybe, just about everywhere). If you’re willing to pitch in and lend hand, the city is ready to provide you with tools and other supplies you’ll need to make Seattle, umm, the cleanest, umm, city with a Space Needle in the Northwest. (Yeah, we can make that happen!) Spring Clean is a collaboration among the city’s Department of Neighborhoods, Seattle Public Utilities and SDOT.
From the Spring Clean website:
Spring is here! And with it comes Spring Clean, a community cleanup program supported by Seattle Public Utilities.
Spring Clean, now in its 32nd year, runs from April 1 through May 31. During this time, Seattle residents—neighbors, volunteer groups, community organizations—come together to keep Seattle clean and vibrant. Activities include picking up litter, stenciling storm drains to prevent water pollution, painting out graffiti, and removing invasive plants. Seattle Public Utilities supports volunteers by providing free tools like garbage bags, gloves, garbage grabbers, safety vests, paint supplies, and waste disposal.
Ready to join? Then gather your friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors, or go solo—there’s no minimum or maximum group size. Register online or call (206) 233-7187.
All Spring Clean projects must be conducted on public property.
