The Neighborhood Clean-up Program works to make Spokane neighborhoods clean, safe, and healthy for all residents to live and thrive in. This program funds neighborhood clean-up and community-building opportunities as a partnership between the Office of Neighborhood Services (ONS) and Department of Solid Waste Collection. The Neighborhood Clean-up Program supports the broader City of Spokane's actions to reduce property crime, beautify Spokane, and promote community resiliency.
We provide resources to Neighborhood Councils to take action and lead the charge against excess garbage and debris in their neighborhoods. Through volunteer-led events, the City of Spokane encourages neighbors to work together and help one another. In the process, neighbors can build stronger bonds and a sense of community pride. It can also serve as a springboard for deeper neighborhood participation.
Each Neighborhood Council may apply for up to and not to exceed a clean-up project allocation credit value of $7,500 at the beginning of the calendar year. No cash grant or other means of program funding is provided. The project allocation is available only for services provided by Solid Waste Collection, and only for that current calendar year within the boundaries of that Neighborhood Council. This program is intended for residential clean-up only for use by citizens residing within the designated Neighborhood boundaries. If you are interested in being a Clean-up Coordinator for your neighborhood, contact your Neighborhood Council.
