Spring Clean supplies available at Neighborhood Service Centers

SEATTLE — Spring has arrived and Seattleites are gearing up to take part in the city’s longest-running neighborhood cleanup program – Spring Clean.  The Seattle Department of Neighborhood’s Neighborhood Service Centers will be stocked with cleaning supplies for volunteers to spruce up their neighborhoods.

Spring Clean, now in its 24th year, runs from April through May. City officials estimate more than 12,000 volunteers have participated in recent years. 

 Spring Clean activities include painting out graffiti, picking up litter and illegally dumped materials, stenciling storm drains, cleaning school yards, removing invasive plants in planting strips and traffic circles, and planting trees.  All projects are conducted on public property.

The City of Seattle supports volunteers with FREE bags, gloves, safety vests, and waste disposal. Spring Clean information, including neighborhood cleanup activities and sign-up packets, is available by calling (206) 233-7187 or by visiting www.seattle.gov/util/springclean

Spring Clean is a partnership between Seattle residents and Seattle Public Utilities, Parks and Recreation, the Department of Neighborhoods, and the Seattle Department of Transportation.
