2019 Neighborhood Cleanup

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 4th, 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. We will have food available for volunteers.

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

We mostly need volunteers to unload cars, which is physical work. However, there are a few roles that are less physical. If you’d like to volunteer but cannot do the physical work, please check the box below and we will try to provide you with a less physical role. All roles will require some amount of standing and moving around the event area.

    I have an old, rolled up carpet as well as some pieces of wooden strips that attached carpet to the floor (around the edges of the room). Are these materials acceptable for the Neighborhood Cleanup?

      They certainly are!

    I have some tile from kitchen remodel, is that acceptable for drop off?

      Sorry we didn’t see this comment before the event started. Unfortunately, construction debris is not allowed.
