Why should you join the District Cleanups #CleanupCrew?
First, cleaning up our communities is something that needs to be done. It keeps our city safe and beautiful for all those who live in and visit the District. Nobody likes seeing trash on the ground, and we're able to do something about it.
Second, it's easy! Just show up! Once you have some gloves and a grabber, there's not going to be any stopping you from becoming a community-benefitting, trash-picking, caring and daring anti-litter MACHINE. District Cleanups' purpose is to demonstrate ownership of and pride in our communities, thereby making things better than they were.
Third, it's fun and good for you! If you're coming to our cleanups, our hope is that you're getting to see parts of the District that you might not have ever explored. Perhaps you're meeting people you'd never otherwise meet. Beyond the #CleanupCrew's push to make things better, we sincerely hope that you're getting something out of our events. Your effort matters. Your attention matters. Your actions matter. While there's an obvious goal of removing litter from our streets, it is also the goal of District Cleanups to remind you of how much good you can put into the world.
Never underestimate your ability to have a positive impact.

Community cleanups don't happen on their own! If you would like to help organize a cleanup for a specific area or host a post-cleanup social event, please let us know so we can help coordinate the details!
