Chicago's Citywide Clean and Green Volunteer Program

Clean and Green


On Saturday, April 21, 2018, Chicagoans can join a two decade long tradition of teaming up with community groups and the City of Chicago to help beautify communities across the City. It's easy to get involved. Just assemble a team and sign up to clean a neighborhood location near you.  

Participating Clean and Green groups should note the following:

  • Registration deadline is Monday, April 16th
  • All groups should call 311 to register.
  • DSS will provide bags, rakes, shovels and brooms.
  • Tools will be available prior to the day of service and pickup should be coordinated with your local Alderman's office or Ward Superintendent. 

As a reminder, yard waste and debris from the clean up should not be thrown in Blue Carts as it contaminates the recycling stream.
