All Hands Neighborhood Cleanup

Introducing the 2024 All Hands Neighborhood Cleanup Series! Join us as we beautify five Seattle neighborhoods with ten community cleanups from March to October. Each event focuses on removing litter and graffiti to make our city cleaner and more inviting. Bring your friends and neighbors to these cleanups! We promise good vibes and a fun time outdoors in your neighborhood.

If none of those times or locations work for you- do not worry! We have compiled a list of events by SPU, community partners, and neighborhood cleanups. Join one of our neighborhood stewardship activities in April and May to care for Seattle, help your neighborhood, and protect our environment. Learn about our programs and discover the many ways to Spring to Action!

Learn more about how to get started with your own cleanup with neighbors and friends through our Adopt a Street Program. Don’t worry, it is non-committed! You can do cleanups as often as you’d like.

Help us keep Seattle safe and clean by reporting illegal dumping, pollution, and graffiti. You can also learn more about preventing and removing graffiti, collection of sharps, public litter cans, and keeping alleys clear of collection containers.
