Make a clean sweep of our neighborhood by joining the Sustainability Committee of the Park Slope Civic Council at its annual spring beautification, recycling and clean-up event – the Spring Civic Sweep on Sunday, April 23, 2017, from 10 am to 2 pm (rain or shine). Our check-in is on 5th Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets adjacent to JJ Byrne Playground/Washington Park.
Join other volunteers in picking up litter on sidewalks, participating in the care of street trees as well as painting out graffiti, supervised by adults. In addition:
- Bring your unwanted Electronics for Recycling by the Lower East Side Ecology Center: working & non-working computers, monitors, printers, scanners, keyboards, mice, cables, TV’s, VCR’s, CD & DVD players, phones, audio/visual equipment, cell phones & PDA’s.
- Get free perennials from the Greenbelt Native Plant Center

We’ll provide tools, supplies and refreshments. Volunteers will leave wearing “I Made Park Slope Cleaner Today” stickers. Community Service vouchers will be available.
See you there!
