*The 2020 Great American Cleanup has been cancelled as a safety precaution, to stop the spread of the Coronavirus.
The City of North Port is excited to host the Great American Cleanup every spring! City employees along with local residents join forces to help keep our community beautiful!
The Great American Cleanup engages more than 5 million volunteers and participants, on average, every year to create a positive and lasting impact. It is the country's largest community improvement program that kicks off in more than 20,000 communities each spring. This year's Great American Cleanup in North Port will focus along City roadways.
Residents interested in attending the Cleanup should meet at North Port City Hall (4970 City Hall Boulevard) at 8:00am on April 4th. The cleanup effort is anticipated to take place from 8:00am to 11:00am.
The Great American Cleanup is part of Keep Sarasota County Beautiful (KSCB), a county-wide beautification program that initiates community cleanup projects to help keep our community free of debris. The organization is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful Inc., a national, non-profit, public education organization dedicated to improving waste handling practices in American communities. Locally, our mission is “to enhance and promote public interest and participation in the general improvement of the environment throughout Sarasota County” which is done through education, cleanup programs, recycling and other methods of reducing solid waste.
If you or someone you know would like to help out by volunteering for the Great American Cleanup, please contact the Department of Public Works at 941-240-8050.
