Our neighborhood cleanups provide a way for community members to help keep Louisville clean and green all throughout the year. This is a great opportunity to foster civic pride and community engagement. Many groups use this as a team building activity within their place of employment, neighborhoods, place of worship, school and other community or service groups. No group is too small, whether it be one person or one hundred, all of our volunteers make an impact.
If you would like to host a Neighborhood Cleanup registering is easy! Just fill out the Neighborhood Cleanup Registration Form below or, if you would prefer to download the form and fax or email it to us, you can do so here – Download Neighborhood Cleanup Registration Form.
Once your cleanup has been registered, you may pick up your requested supplies at the Shelby Park Community Center (600 E Oak Street). Supply pick up is available from 2:00pm to 5:00 p.m. any Tuesday or Friday prior to your event (only by appointment in December and January). You can also call our office year round to schedule an appointment to pick up supplies.
Any group who would like to host a cleanup can be provided gloves, trash bags and a limited quantity of brooms, rakes and shovels at no cost. Simply pick a day and a place, round up a few people and get to work! We ask that you provide us with a minimum of TWO WEEKS notice to allow for scheduling trash collection with Solid Waste Management. Cleanups scheduled with less notice will be asked to find alternative means of disposing the collected litter and debris.
