Do I need to register?
No pre-registration is necessary. Stop by your local kickoff site any time between 9am-11:30am on April 22 to check in and pick up bags and gloves. Then head out to collect litter at your park or neighborhood of choice.
What do I do with my full bags of garbage?
Full bags of litter can be deposited in or next to any City of Saint Paul Parks garbage can. You can also drop full bags at one of the many drop-sites around the city. Please deposit bags at drop-sites by noon. Check back for a map of drop-off locations.
Can I drop off household items like appliances and TVs?
NO! This is a volunteer event for cleaning up litter. This event does not collect household items. For more information on how to dispose of household items, please refer to the Citywide Drop-off Event Page.
What is the weather policy?
This is a rain or shine event, however, it may be cancelled in the case of severe weather, such as thunderstorms, or if there is snow cover preventing trash from being visible. In the event of a Citywide Spring Cleanup cancellation, we will post a notice on on this page. We will make every effort to post a cancellation notice by 4pm the day before the event, however, April weather can be unpredictable and a cancellation is possible on event day.
