City of Tacoma Will Sponsor 15 Community Cleanups in 2019

The 2019 Community Cleanup program will kick off on April 27, and this year will include paper-shredding services at most locations as well as dumpsters and recycling stations. The full schedule is available online at cityoftacoma.org/cleanup.


The program is a partnership between the City and neighborhood groups for one cleanup day per calendar year. The cleanup day provides an opportunity for residential customers, who live in single-family homes or duplexes, to clean their properties and save a trip to the Tacoma Recovery & Transfer Center. The program relies on volunteers from neighborhood groups, and in 2018, more than 400 volunteers made the cleanup program successful removing close to 900 tons of unwanted items from neighborhoods across Tacoma.

For more information contact Neighborhood and Community Services at (253) 591-5693 or agibilisco@cityoftacoma.org.
