Project Description

The Great American Cleanup is the nation's largest community improvement program, and Fort Wayne has participated in it for over 30 years. It's an opportunity to show community pride by lending a hand to clean up littered roadsides, parks, trails, and river greenways. The City provides groups with garbage bags, gloves, and T-shirts. After the work is done, a volunteer celebration with food, drinks, prizes, and live entertainment is held at Headwaters Park from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 pm. Volunteers Groups are asked to pre-register before April 19.

A clean city makes a difference: It looks better to residents and visitors, and improves the overall quality of life. Litter, graffiti, unkempt parks and trails, and scattered debris create unsightly areas that would give visitors the wrong impression.

Groups, as well as individuals, are encouraged to participate. All you need to do is select an area in the community that you would like to beautify and sign up. The City can also provide you with a location to clean if you do not have one. Volunteers can begin their cleanup anytime during the day.
