Hello, and thank you for your interest in Spring Clean!

Spring Clean is supported by the Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) Adopt-a-Street (AAS) Program and serves as the premier clean-up event for the City of Seattle. Held each year in April and May, Spring Clean provides opportunities for residents to keep our city tidy through community-centered clean-up events. Once you have chosen a clean-up location, the AAS Program will provide your clean-up team with supplies (including garbage/compost bags, gloves, safety vests, and garbage grabbers), and will arrange for your trash bags to be picked up following your clean-up event! SPU partners with Parks and Recreation, Department of Neighborhoods, and Department of Transportation to accomplish this important work.

Last year during Spring Clean, SPU's volunteers:

  • Hosted 107 clean-up events
  • Volunteered 1,633 hours to their community
  • Picked up over 12,000 pounds of litter

We can't wait for Spring Clean again! Come back to this page April 1st to request supplies for your clean-up event. In the meantime, if you have any questions, you can reach us via email at adoptastreet@seattle.gov or by phone at (206) 684-7647.

Have a great day, and thank you for helping keep our community clean!
