We will be posting all projects on the website as early as February to get volunteers signed up, so please submit your applications as soon as possible.

Supplies for Your Cleanup Project

The City will offer a limited number of supplies to assist with your Cleanup projects. These items include:

  • Trash bags
  • Rakes
  • Paint & Brushes
  • Gloves
  • Shovels
  • Brooms
  • Recycling Bins

In addition, we will help support your projects by directing volunteers to your sites, collecting trash and recyclables from your Cleanup and assisting you in planning your project. We are unable to provide special ordered supplies.

Keep Up The Sweep Up!

We’re out to put an end to litter and illegal dumping – not just on Cleanup day, but permanently. And the more partners like you that help us, the better. The UnLitter Us rally cry was heard loud and clear. It led to community education programs, stricter enforcement, and block-by-block cleaning events. Let’s join hands to make our neighborhoods and our City as beautiful as they can be.

Questions?

The Philly Spring Cleanup 2015 is a great start, but we need to keep it going all year long. If you have any questions, or if you would like to learn how you could support litter prevention efforts beyond the Spring Cleanup, please contact phillyspringcleanup@phila.gov.

  1. “”Clean up project””
    A while ago I saw a video of how your city is sorting household trash, scores perhaps hundreds of workers standing by fast moving conveyor belts, frantically picking off trash that “shouldnt” be going to the landfill sites…………..a somewhat ancient method in these modern times, and still tipping rubbish on landfills…………..well………………….why not, the whole of America does it…………and some landfills are vast in sizes, areas as big as cities and getting bigger and bigger……and BIGGER………….whereas some EU countries have actually solved the problems with household trash………….well, Sweden has…………………….absolutely no household trash is landfilled………..for over 10 yrs now………..so what does Sweden do with its trash………………….we incinerate it to provide heat and electricity………YUP…………..energy and electricity from trash………..and emissions are “uncannyingly” ? LOW…….24 lbs per Mwh, and they supply the country with about 42% of energy needed by homes and industries………..and no, this is not science fiction……………………
