Community Clean-Up Events
Fall Cleanup: October 19, 2019

Join in the fun to make the city beautiful! In the spring and fall, volunteers work together to clean up the city. Volunteers meet at the Community Center, are organized into teams, and assigned to work areas throughout the city. City staff distributes trash pickers, trash bags, recycling bags, gloves, and reflective vests. Perfect for community groups (Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, etc.), church groups, families, or individuals.
