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

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

This March, 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. 

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 participate individually, with your family, or host a small group with your friends and neighbors! Email us at [email protected] if you are thinking of planning your own event.  

Here are some quick tips on how to host your own neighborhood cleanup and keep everyone safe.

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