Clean Sweep 2019 8535

This collective volunteer effort to clean up the community gathers volunteers from around the city and assigns them sections of the community for a Council Bluffs-wide spring cleaning!

Since we began tracking in 2012, this event has resulted in more than 18,000 pounds of trash cleaned up. Imagine how much it’s been since this event was created in 1971! A great help for beautifying the community each year.

Refreshments are provided for volunteers to enjoy as they clean-up.
