Clean Sweep is a community gathering, offering citizens an opportunity to reacquaint themselves with old friends and make new ones. City crews also remove graffiti, clean City properties, repair sidewalks and fill potholes during the Saturday Sweeps.
Clean Sweep is also become team-building exercises for neighborhood associations, church groups, school clubs and teams, and civic organizations. Residents can also take advantage of Clean Sweep by raking and their own yards and sidewalks and placing the bulk refuse at the curb, knowing a City crew will soon come by to retrieve it.
