Mayor Bowser's Spring Cleanup

Mayor Bowser's Spring Cleanup, April 6
Last Date:


Get outside, meet your neighbors, and show your DC love!

This April, Mayor Muriel Bowser calls on all DC residents to get out and help keep DC clean by picking up trash in the places you care about: your home, your block, your park, your river. Join us on April 6!

Take 5 minutes to clean up outside your home, 30 minutes along your block, or team up with others for a full-neighborhood scrub! You can also join larger cleanup events hosted by the Mayor's Office of Community Relations and Services, Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement, and others.

Need a bag? Pick some up from one of the events listed below, or from any Department of Parks & Recreation rec center! Here are some quick tips on how to host your own neighborhood cleanup.

Share your results with us on social media! Tag @CleanCityDC and #TrashFreeDC on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook.
