Frequently Asked Questions
What You Need to Know
Should I bring my own gloves and trash bags for a cleanup?
Thanks to the great help of the Pittsburgh Department of Public Works, gloves and bags will be provided before each cleanup starts. All volunteers should bring water, walking shoes, sunscreen and/or rain protection (if necessary), as well as a smile!
Can I donate food at a #CLEANUP412 event?
YES! Each of our cleanups has a food drive for the local food pantry of the town we cleanup. Not only are we focused on community restoration, but also feeding those in need!
How has the pandemic affected the city cleanups?
We are carefully monitoring the conditions of each area prior to cleanups, and each volunteer will be given a free facemask at the start of each cleanup. In addition, each volunteer will be able to sign-in or sign voter registrations with a brand new (clean) pen. Hand sanitizer will also be available. All resources are limited.
