Call 311 Now to Register for the Mayor’s Spring Cleanup!

BALTIMORE, MD. (Wednesday, March 16, 2022) — Spring is near! Mayor Brandon M. Scott and Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) Director Jason W. Mitchell encourage residents to organize now and join together to clean and beautify their neighborhoods for the Mayor’s Spring Cleanup on Saturday, April 30, 2022.

To fortify this year’s Spring Cleanup efforts, Mayor Scott will visit communities facing cleaning. During these visits, the Mayor will be armed with a team of DPW solid waste workers and volunteer-led cleaning crews.

Mayor Scott’s Spring Cleanup will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Community associations, block leaders, and organizations throughout the City can call 311 to register their cleaning activities and volunteer or visit https://mayor.baltimorecity.gov/sign-form-day-service. In addition, during this citywide day of cleaning, individual residents are welcome to clean where they live by cleaning up loose litter around their properties, alleyways, and curbsides.

“I urge Baltimore City residents to plan now to make this year our best and biggest Mayor’s Spring Cleanup,” said Mayor Brandon M. Scott. “This is an important day of service, where neighbors not only work together to clean and beautify where they live. They roll up their sleeves to assist other communities facing cleaning challenges. Through teamwork and community commitment, we can keep Baltimore City clean.”

Spring Cleanup participants who register their cleaning activities can request that City trucks visit their locations to collect debris. In addition to calling 311 to register cleaning activities, residents can also visit balt311.baltimorecity.gov.

In addition, residents can register to volunteer by calling 311, https://mayor.baltimorecity.gov/sign-form-day-service.

Registrants are encouraged to sign up on Facebook for the Mayor’s Spring Cleanup.

Residents can request stormwater credit applications when calling 311 to register their cleaning .

DPW will provide five trash collection bags to registered participants. Bags can be picked up at the following DPW locations: 2840 Sisson St. or 111 Kane St.  Participants should be ready to provide registration information in order to receive their collection bags.

“The Department of Public Works is always eager to advance Mayor Scott’s vision for clean and healthy neighborhoods across Baltimore City,” said Director Jason W. Mitchell. “Keeping our city clean and beautiful is at the heart of DPW’s mission as a department, and we are excited to continue supporting the tradition of the annual Mayor’s Spring Cleanup. DPW is always looking for opportunities to partner with community organizations and residents around cleaning our great city, and we encourage everyone to sign up for this year’s cleanup efforts.”

In addition, trash and debris can be bagged and placed out with weekly scheduled trash collections for pickup. Residents can also bring bagged trash to the Residential Drop-Off Centers. Participants who are disposing of collected debris at the Residential Drop-off Centers must follow the drop-off centers’ guidelines, which do not allow commercial vehicles.

Unfortunately, no bulk trash items will be collected, and roll-off dumpsters will not be distributed as part of this year’s Spring Cleanup.
