The Great American Cleanup is the nation’s largest community improvement program that Fort Wayne has participated in for over 20 years. It is a time whenwe can show our community pride by lending a hand to clean up littered roadsides, parks, trails and river ways.
A clean city makes a difference: It looks better to residents and visitors, and improves the overall quality of life. Litter, graffiti, unkempt parks and trails, and scattered debris create unsightly areas that would give visitors the wrong impression. Through the work of volunteers, we can come together and show how much we care about Fort Wayne’s neighborhoods and public spaces.
The City provides groups with garbage bags, gloves, and T-shirts. After the work is done, a volunteer celebration with food, drinks, prizes and live entertainment is held at Headwaters West from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
