Philly Spring Cleanup

Kicking off the spring season with city-wide cleaning, beautification, and greening projects.


Every April, City government, residents, and organizations partner to kick off the spring season by cleaning and beautifying Philadelphia’s neighborhoods through Philly Spring Cleanup. This Department of Streets event takes place at hundreds of locations across the city. Residents and organizations can register as volunteers or submit projects, including park and neighborhood cleanups.

Activities include:

  • Picking up trash.
  • Sweeping sidewalks.
  • Removing graffiti.
  • Painting benches.
  • Planting bulbs.

Philly Spring Cleanup is Philadelphia’s largest city-wide, single-day clean-up event. Since its 2008 launch, a total of 200,000 volunteers have removed more than 11.4 million pounds of trash and 950,000 pounds of tires from city streets at nearly 6,750 project sites.
