Join us for the 13th Annual City of Rochester Clean Sweep!
Clean Sweep Saturday will be held from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday May 11 and begin at Frontier Field. Volunteers will gather to collect a free Clean Sweep t-shirt, eat a light breakfast and get their assignments before heading out to project sites. Mayor Warren will greet the volunteers and pose for a group photo.
Volunteers participating in Clean Sweep will receive a free ticket to that day’s baseball game, which starts at 1:05 p.m. that afternoon. They’ll also receive a voucher for food and drink at the game. Free parking will be available to those wearing Clean Sweep t-shirts.
Student volunteers will receive Participation in Government certificates.
Since it was first launched in 2006, more than 30,000 volunteers have participated in Clean Sweep, working alongside City crews to remove winter debris and litter from city neighborhoods. Volunteers also plant flowers, prune trees and perform other neighborhood beautification projects. City crews also remove graffiti, clean City-owned properties, repair sidewalks and fill potholes.
Volunteers are encouraged to sign up in advance by calling 311 or using the Clean Sweep Registration form, but everyone is welcome to join the day of the event, too!
Please wear appropriate clothing, including hard-soled shoes and long pants. Gloves and tools will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own if possible.
