Registration Open For 2023 Great Savannah Community Cleanup
SAVANNAH, GA (Aug. 1, 2023) — Keep Savannah Beautiful, and the City of Savannah’s Sanitation Department, encourages residents and organizations to sign up for the annual Great Savannah Community Cleanup.
The Great Savannah Community Cleanup is a city-wide day of service where residents, businesses, and local community organizations come together to beautify and improve the city of Savannah by removing litter and debris from public areas.
The cleanup will take place Saturday, Sept. 30, 2023, from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. Keep Savannah Beautiful will provide cleaning supplies for all participants that host a cleanup.
Those interested may register online by Friday, Sept. 15, 2023 at savannahga.gov/greatsavannahcleanup or by contacting Carliss Bates at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Residents can choose to participate individually, or partner with their neighborhood or preferred civic organization to assist with their planned cleanup. Student participants are eligible to receive community service hours for their involvement with the cleanup.
Residents and organizations are also encouraged to participate in the Adopt-A-Spot program and adopt a street, park, or neighborhood. When adopting a spot, the City will furnish and install an Adopt-A-Spot sign, stating which responsible organization assisted in removing debris collected at the adoptive site.
The City will also provide safety vests, gloves, and plastic bags to aid in the litter removal activities. Interested parties can register online at savannahga.gov/adopt-a-spot.
