Great American Clean Up

Volunteers Sought to Keep City Beautiful


The Great American Cleanup is the country's largest beautification and community improvement effort. Nationwide, there were more than four million volunteers last year. Fort Wayne's clean-up efforts focus on neighborhoods, vacant lots, trails and greenways, graffiti removal, streets and roads, and our rivers. The event provides a great opportunity for neighborhood associations, church groups, service organizations, youth groups, schools, and all residents to make a difference in their community.

The City is looking for volunteers and groups of all ages to take part in the clean-up of litter and debris from Fort Wayne's neighborhoods, parks, roadways, trails, and riverbanks. In order to accommodate participants with an event tee-shirt, gloves, and trash bags, residents and groups are asked to pre-register by clicking or by calling 311.
