Spring Clean Out: Spruce up the Neighborhood with Your Family

Seattle Public Utilities invites you and your family to participate in a city-wide program to help spruce up your neighborhood. From now until May 3, registered volunteers will be provided with free litter cleanup bags, gloves, safety vests and waste disposal permits.

Spring Clean is Seattle's premier clean-up event. Held each year in April and May through an SPU partnership with Parks and Recreation, Department of Neighborhoods, and Department of Transportation, Spring Clean provides opportunities for residents to keep our city tidy.

Pick up litter, stencil storm drains, paint out graffiti, remove invasive plants, or join an event in your community. Neighborhood clean-ups are great for families and relationship-building with your neighbors—not to mention a great way to teach kids about caring for their communities and neighborhoods.
