Help us remove ALL of the litter in Cleveland in one day!
On April 21, we are hosting the 5th annual Great Cleveland Clean-Up. Volunteers can meet coordinators at any of the 35 different meet-up locations by 12:30pm. Before we divide into groups, volunteers are taught how to recycle and educated on the effects of litter. We will spread out in teams of five, removing as much litter as possible in three hours. Volunteers primarily focus on removing litter from parks, sidewalks, playgrounds, neighborhoods, and highway exists & entrances.
The Great Cleveland Clean-Up is an opportunity for employees or students to receive community service hours. We partner with many nonprofit organizations, businesses, youth groups, schools, and churches to raise awareness. This year, our goal is to enlist 2,800 volunteers for the Great Cleveland Clean-Up. This means we need 80 volunteers at each meet-up location. This means 560 groups of 5! It takes a great deal of networking, organization, and leadership to put this event together. Please consider reaching out to join a committee.

Our cleaning events are organized passionately by people who volunteer to pick up litter. We encourage others to create change in hopes to inspire an environmentally friendly culture. Litter is a distraction. Litter also disturbs people. Without litter, resources are more accessible. People tend to gravitate toward cleaner areas spending more money with local businesses. Making the environment more attractive improves the economy.
