Host a Cleanup

Neighborhood cleanups are not only for the spring! Get your friends, family, coworkers, or organization together to volunteer. You can now work with the City of Boston to plan cleanups all year long.

It's fine if you don't have a specific project already in mind! We will help determine the best project for your group.

Spring Cleanups 2017

Our spring cleanups took place during the weekends of April 28-29, May 5-6, and May 12-13. City of Boston residents came out to make Boston shine, one block at a time. These high-impact spring cleaning opportunities covered every neighborhood of Boston, with more than 3,000 participants. See some of our wonderful volunteers below!
