Each year, MoCA gets the notification about the Seattle Spring Clean Up. With the assistance of Stan Lock, our Neighborhood Coordinator, MoCA may be able to pull of it’s first community clean up in our neighborhood. We are confirming details and will post them soon. Meanwhile, you might have a more local application and want to take advantage of this opportunity to organize something for your own block, especially if you live near a gone-wild traffic circle.
"Spring Clean is a great way to beautify your business district or neighborhood. Spring Clean, Seattle's cleanup of public spaces, is held by Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) throughout April and early May. This program provides groups with plastic bags, free disposal and assistance. SPU will also be glad to help with neighborhood stewardship projects any time of the year -- not just in the spring.
How to get involved:
- Organize a team. Team up with other businesses, neighbors, a nearby school, community groups, family and friends.
- Choose your project. Project ideas include: picking up litter, planting flowers, painting out graffiti, creating a mural or any other project which will beautify the public spaces in your neighborhood. The Rainier Chamber of Commerce, Queen Anne Chamber of Commerce, Lake City Chamber of Commerce and the University District all run model Spring Clean programs.
- Register. Send for a registration packet, which contains information on how to get free plastic bags and passes to a Recycling and Disposal Station. In addition, the City can work to get other individuals in your area matched to your team.
For more information, call 206-233-7187 or request an information packet by sending your name, group name, address, day and evening phone to:
