Comprehensive Community Cleanup Program

The Department of the Environment (DoE) Comprehensive Community Cleanup Program is designed to revitalize, enhance and help maintain unincorporated areas of the County.  During the spring and fall seasons, DoE works with organized civic and homeowners associations to provide a concentrated focus of County cleanup and maintenance services to a community over a two-week period.

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.
