Mini Sweeps

Our streets and neighborhoods look great after Clean Sweep! Do you wish we could get that Clean Sweep look any time? We can - with a mini sweep!

Mini sweeps are mini Clean Sweep events, organized by the community and supported by the City. Mini sweeps can help you and your block club or neighborhood organization improve an area that needs a little love.

How does a mini sweep work?

  • Pick a project, a date and a fun group to work with
  • At least two weeks before, call your Neighborhood Service Center to talk about your plan
  • On the day of the event, the City will drop off tools, work gloves and bags
  • You work, have fun and make a difference
  • When you finish up, we will come back to pick up the tools and debris

Things to consider while planning

  • What do you plan to work on?
  • How many people will participate?
  • What tools do you need?
  • What time will you start work?
  • What time will you finish up?
