Help keep our city clean and volunteer for the Citywide Spring Cleanup

Saint Paul is known for its lush, green riverfront and beautiful parks system. Unfortunately, our long, cold and snowy winters don’t leave our streets clear until April, and sometimes May. Six months of built-up snow leaves behind a supply of trash in neighborhoods and parks throughout the city. With the help of residents, the city has organized the annual Citywide Spring Cleanup event for the last 30 years to remove trash and get our parks back in shape.
Kicking off at 6 locations on Saturday, April 12, the Citywide Spring Cleanup volunteers will meet for a brief program and collect supplies before heading to a nearby park or neighborhood. Kickoff locations include: Como Lakeside Pavilion, Highland Pavilion, Indian Mounds Large Shelter, Phalen Picnic Pavilion, Harriet Island – Kelley’s Landing, and Linwood Recreation Center.
Details about the event:
Saturday, April 12
8:30 a.m. Registration
9-9:15 a.m. Kickoff Celebrations
9:15 a.m. Cleanup begins!
 
Although pre-registration is not required, residents interested in volunteering are encouraged to sign-up ahead of time at: http://bit.ly/StPaulCleanup 

At each of the kickoff locations will be an environmental sustainability table with information about all of Saint Paul's exciting recycling initiatives, and give residents an opportunity to obtain current news and locations for compost drop-off sites.

This event is a fun and effective way to improve the natural environment in our city and a great event for families or groups to volunteer together. The City of Saint Paul appreciates your commitment to helping make Saint Paul the Most Livable City in America!
