2018 Neighborhood Cleanup Saturday: May 5th

Does shattering household items provide you with a deep sense of satisfaction?

Well, now you can smash and shatter for your neighborhood! In fact, your neighborhood NEEDS you to smash and shatter…and throw and stomp and crush at the Neighborhood Cleanup!

The Mt. Scott-Arleta and Foster-Powell Neighborhood Associations will host our joint annual cleanup event on May 5th, and we need 50 volunteers to help unload cars, throw household items, and smash stuff to fit it in the bins.

Volunteer to Help at the Clean Up

If you’d rather repair, repurpose, and reuse, well, we need you too! The cleanup isn’t just about sending bins full of garbage to the dump. It’s also about finding the treasure in the trash, and volunteering means you get first pick of all of that beautiful treasure.

Volunteers also get to deliver a load of trash for FREE. And they get fed. Last year we had tons of Henry Higgins bagels, Arleta Library Cafe pastries and coffee, sandwiches, chips, and a bunch of other stuff. This year will be even better.

Food, free stuff, and smashing for your hood. Does volunteering get any better than this?

Event Details

Date: May 5th, 2018
