Seattle’s long-running neighborhood cleanup program, Spring Clean, is back, and hundreds or even thousands of residents will spend April and May painting out graffiti, picking up litter, and cleaning up the city in other ways.
Spring Clean is now in its 25th year. Last year, more than 20,000 volunteer hours were put in.
Spring Clean activities include painting out graffiti, picking up litter and illegally dumped materials, stenciling storm drains, cleaning school yards, removing invasive plants in planting strips and traffic circles, and planting trees. All projects are conducted on public property.
The City of Seattle supports volunteers with FREE bags, gloves, safety vests, and waste disposal. Spring Clean information, including neighborhood cleanup activities and sign-up packets, is available by calling 206-233-7187 or by visiting www.seattle.gov/util/springclean.
Spring Clean is a partnership between Seattle residents and Seattle Public Utilities, Parks and Recreation, the Department of Neighborhoods, and the Seattle Department of Transportation.
