Clean Cities Sweep takes place annually, and is our local participation in the Great American Cleanup. Clean Cities Sweep will run this year from March 20th - June 20th and is a call to action for the community to plan litter cleanup and beatification events. Most projects average around 2 hours, and they can be any event that helps the community and the environment. This year we are asking that individuals planning projects for Clean Cities Sweep reach out to us directly via email to let us know how we can assist in their project needs.
We are also launching our DIY Cleanup Kit this year for Clean Cities Sweep, which will allow City residents to request an individual litter cleanup kit. These kits are designed for individuals or small families to be able to conduct their own cleanup efforts on a regular basis. Volunteers can keep the kit indefinitely, or just borrow the kit for a limited amount of time.
Litter cleanup supplies are lent out to large groups of volunteers when available, and include GLAD trash bags, gloves, trash grabbers, visibility vests, first aid kits, hand sanitizer, and other necessary supplies. Groups can also plan beautification projects, in additional to litter cleanup events. Unfortunately our funding source for beautification related projects is very limited this year, so we will not be able to provide beautification supplies on the scale we have been able to in past years. Please reach out directly via email if you would like to inquire about beautification supplies. We look forward to working with your group to keep Charleston beautiful and litter-free!
