CITYWIDE CLEANUP FAQ:
WHEN IS CITYWIDE CLEANUP?
May 5 - June 3, 2022! We have partnered with local businesses who understand how important cleanup is for our city, and we're working on ways to make it safe and successful. We're keeping this event a month long to allow time for the snow to melt and for more participation!

HOW DO I CLEAN UP SAFELY?
- Remember to wear gloves while picking up trash and an orange safety vest if cleaning roadways or intersections.
- Bring sturdy plastic containers suitable for sharps like used needles. These could be medical sharps containers designed for needle collection, available at some pharmacies, or thick plastic jugs for detergent, kitty litter, or shampoo (water bottles are too thin and can be punctured.) Here’s a flier from the state health department on safe needle disposal.
- Please be aware of private property boundaries and ask permission to clean these areas.
