This Saturday, April 21, Mayor Muriel Bowser is inviting residents and visitors to come together to make Washington, D.C., a cleaner, greener city. There are many ways to get involved: by cleaning the outside of one’s home, in one’s block, or even in an entire neighborhood scrub. Throughout all eight Wards of the District, there will also be Earth Day events hosted by the D.C. Parks & Recreation department.

Below, see a map (with time frames) of where each Ward will convene to begin neighborhood cleanups.

Additional cleanups will be held at Fairlawn Community Cleanup around Kramer Middle School at 1700 Q Street SE. This cleanup is from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with registration required due to limited space. There will also be a cleanup convening at Kelly Miller Recreation Center at 4900 Brooks Street NE from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with registration required. Finally, for those interested in helping the Anacostia Watershed, find a list of cleanup sites here.
