It’s Time for Spring Clean
City-Sponsored Neighborhood Cleanup Runs April – May 

SEATTLE — Spring is almost here and now is the time for Seattleites to gear up and take part in the city’s longest-running neighborhood cleanup program – Spring Clean.

Spring Clean, now in its 27th year, runs from April through May. Spring Clean activities include painting out graffiti, picking up litter and illegally dumped materials, stenciling storm drains, cleaning school yards, removing invasive plants in planting strips and traffic circles, and planting trees.  All projects are conducted on public property.

The City of Seattle supports volunteers with FREE bags, gloves, safety vests, and waste disposal. Get started today! Call 206-233-7187, or register online at

Spring Clean is a partnership between Seattle residents and Seattle Public Utilities, Parks and Recreation, the Department of Neighborhoods, and the Seattle Department of Transportation.
