City urges spring cleaning of your neighborhood

Seattle Public Utilities is inviting you to participate in a city-wide program to spruce up your neighborhood.

Between April 1 and May 3, SPU is supporting volunteers by providing free litter cleanup bags, gloves, safety vests and waste disposal permits.

Help pick up litter, stencil storm drains, paint out graffiti, remove invasive plants, or join an event in your community.

Neighborhood clean-ups are great for families and relationship building with your neighbors.
