Team Up to Clean Up

“Team Up to Clean Up!” is a beautification program initiated in 2019 to help reverse the process of neighborhood deterioration and enhance the quality of life in the city. 

“Mask Up to Clean Up!” is a call to enlist residents, during this time of COVID, to voluntarily pitch in to do clean-ups where they live that create a cleaner, safer, and healthier environment.

With COVID-19 safety guidelines still in place, community members can do clean-ups with immediate family, in groups of five or fewer, or do individual clean-ups of their neighborhood as part of an initiative to have all residents join efforts toward maintaining property, beginning with where they live. 

Other guidelines to follow are to wear masks, practice social distancing, and wash hands regularly or use hand sanitizer. KLCB will provide supplies such as bags, gloves, and locations within the district.
