2018 Community Cleanup Resource Guide

Posted by Keep Philadelphia Beautiful on November 20, 2017

Yes, the cleanup season may be (sadly!) over, but don’t worry – your #KeepPhillyBeautiful friends have just the announcement to tide you through the winter months.

You guessed it: Our 2018 Community Cleanup Resource Guide is here!

Four years ago, we aimed to collect, in one place, information about City government and nonprofit initiatives designed to keep our city clean and green – and to share the nitty gritty details we’ve learned about planning a successful community beautification event, Philly style.

Since the first edition was released, we’ve added sample cleanup organizing documents, successful case studies for engaging your block, trash and recycling tips, and more.

This year, we’ve included all the news you can use about the City’s Zero Waste initiative (head on over to http://cleanphl.org to learn more), as well as some other handy dandy information – that you’ll just have to read the guide to find out. (#SorryNotSorry.)

So without further ado, we’re excited and proud to share the 2018 edition of our cleanup guide here.


But we’re not done yet – we want to hear from you. See things that are missing? Have questions? Sleeping with it under your pillow? Let us know!

Counting down the days til next cleanup season,
