Spring Clean 2009


Dear Citizen,

Spring is quickly approaching and we are gearing up for Spring Clean 2009, Seattle’s premier community clean up event and part of Mayor Greg Nickels’ Clean and Green Seattle Initiative.  We cordially invite you and your neighbors to participate!

 Spring Clean looks to citizens like you to mobilize your community around lending a helping hand in cleaning up Seattle’s public spaces.  This program is a partnership of citizen volunteers and Seattle Public Utilities, the Department of Neighborhoods, Seattle Parks and Recreation, and Seattle Department of Transportation.


Please see below attachment to help get you started:

Dates:  This year, Spring Clean kicks off Saturday, April 4th through Saturday, May 30th. 

Typical Spring Clean Projects:  Past projects have included litter pickups, storm drain stenciling graffiti paint-outs, and invasive plant removal.  Please note that all Spring Clean projects are on public property. 

 City assistance:  The City provides participants with special litter pick up bags, waste disposal permits, tools, and support materials for media outreach.  This support is provided free of charge.

 Project Registration:  To get started on planning a project, please return the attached Spring Clean 2009 Registration Form.  Upon receipt of your completed registration form, we will send you a comprehensive information packet. 

 If you have additional questions, please call the Spring Clean hotline at (206) 233-7187 or visit search “Spring Clean.”


We look forward to working with you!

  1. Just a reminder, we’ll be doing a spring clean of Union and Cherry (if time permits) on April 18th, followed by a BBQ.

    Starts at 10am in front of Katy’s and wraps up around 12pm. BBQ afterwards.
