Individual Park Clean-ups

Recreation, Parks, and Cultural Activities Individual Park Clean-Ups
Volunteer Alexandria is teaming up to support the City of Alexandria by performing individual park clean-ups to improve the appearance and condition of Alexandria's small urban parks and open spaces. Individual clean-ups include you, a trash bag, your favorite park, and reporting back through the Clean Swell app. Sign-up below to register for a park clean-up that will take place between the Friday sign-up date and the following Wednesday.
These clean-ups are for litter pick up only! Please put all trash in the trash bags and do not separate any trash from recycling if your clean-up is along the shoreline. Any trash found along the shoreline is considered a hazard and needs to be thrown away using the same bag. Leave trash bags near a City trash can at the park for the regular trash pick-up.
