Clean Cities Sweep
Clean Cities Sweep School Projects 
March-April; K-12th Grade
*Free supplies for registered schools*

Clean Cities Sweep takes place each year through March and April. Students and teachers plan and conduct cleanup and beautification projects that positively impact the community and environment. Registered schools are provided with Glad bags, gloves, a Colorful Can, and more. At the conclusion of the projects, schools submit a decorated tri-fold poster illustrating how their project impacted the school and the community. Student posters are used to assess the Clean Cities Sweep project impacts, and the top schools are recognized at Charleston City Council Meetings in the Spring.
