Thousands of volunteers will join together on Saturday, October 21, for the bi-annual Brightside & Passport Health Plan Community-Wide Cleanup to pick up litter and beautify sites across Louisville. Last year’s Fall Community-Wide Cleanup saw more than 7,500 volunteers.
Volunteers across the city including Boy & Girl Scouts, neighborhood associations, business associations, elementary school classrooms, families and more—will participate in this fall’s event.
To participate, volunteers choose their own cleanup site and register with Brightside to receive gloves, bags, and for the first 5,000 volunteers, t-shirts. Trash pick-up will be coordinated with Louisville Metro Solid Waste Management Services. The cleanup is sponsored by Passport Health Plan.
Neighborhoods can hold their own cleanups at any point throughout the year, and Brightside encourages neighborhood associations, block watches, businesses and faith groups to play an active role in keeping their neighborhoods litter-free.
Registration for the October 21 community-wide cleanup remains open. Visit here to register your team.
