Comprehensive Community Cleanup Program

The program is designed to revitalize, enhance and help maintain unincorporated areas of the County. The Department of the Environment (DoE) works with organized civic and homeowners associations to provide a concentrated focus of County cleanup and maintenance services to their community over a 2-week period.

This program, which was originally established in 1986, currently provides 21 cleanup phases annually. To schedule a cleanup, your community must have a minimum of 500 single-family homes or townhomes, but not more than 1,000. If your community is scheduled for a cleanup, you will receive a flyer from your civic or homeowner association or there will be information in your local newsletter.
