Neighborhood Based Cleanups

Neighborhood based clean up events are facilitated through the City’s Small Grants Program.  The City will help facilitate clean ups with any registered neighborhood group that wants to implement a neighborhood-based clean up event.  Clean ups can be held anytime during the year, at a location convenient for the neighborhood.  Currently active neighborhood groups that are registered with the city can apply for up to $2,000 in grant funds annually to host clean up events to allow residents to dispose of bulk items.*  The Neighborhood Services Department will also provide technical assistance to registered groups wishing to organize and implement neighborhood clean up events.

*Weekly trash service through a licensed commercial hauler is required for the disposal of putrescible household waster per Municipal Code 15-16 (c). Electronics and hazardous household waste should be disposed of properly.  Yard waste should be disposed of separately via the City’s Yard Waste Collection, or through use of the City’s Small Grants Program to host neighborhood based yard waste clean up events.
