April 14: Pitch in for citywide Spring Cleanup

This weekend there are at least 346 opportunities to beautify Philadelphia and you should lend a hand.

The 5th Annual Spring Cleanup takes place on Saturday, April 14 at sites citywide from 9am until 2pm. It’s fun time to meet neighbors and help make your neighborhood a cleaner, more attractive place.

The Streets Department has a list of 346 neighborhood cleanup events taking place on Saturday, and a searchable map to find one near you. So go on and break out the grubby jeans and your work gloves. It’s time to sweep, collect, haul, paint, weed, and plant.

If you volunteer this year, snap some pix and send them in to Eyes on the Street. We’d love to show off your neighbors in action.
