Event Description:

Join us as we kickoff Cleanup Week! 

Kicking off Anchorage Chamber Citywide Cleanup Week in a neighborhood near you!

As the snow melts, we are left with garbage covering our roadways, parks and trails. We need your help!  Join your community & Anchorage's dedicated trash haulers in various commercial neighborhoods around town to clean up what winter left behind!  It's because of volunteers like you we are able to remove tons of trash each spring - returning Anchorage to the clean, healthy, safe and beautiful place we call home. Grab a group of friends, choose a collection station from the list below, and spend the afternoon making a difference in our community.

Orange Citywide Cleanup trash bags, gloves, and trash disposal will be provided at each participating location during the 4-hour event.
