The Minneapolis Earth Day Clean-Up has been the city’s largest community service project for many years. Since 2008, more than 20,000 residents have removed more than 160,000 pounds of garbage from Minneapolis parks, neighborhoods, and watersheds.

You can participate anytime in April – while staying safe and preventing the spread of COVID-19.  By sharing photos of your cleanup, everyone will see what we can accomplish for the 2021 Earth Day.

It’s free to participate and residents are encouraged to participate by volunteering to help pick up trash in parks, neighborhoods, and watersheds. No registration needed, just follow these easy steps:

  1. Use a trash bag from home or pick up bags and gloves at participating Earth Day sites on April 24 from 9:30 am to noon.
  2. Head to a nearby park or trail to pick up trash (while getting fresh air and exercise).
  3. Practice social distancing and other current COVID-19 guidelines. Learn more at www.minneapolisparks.org/coronavirus-covid-19-information/
  4. Share photos of your trash haul on MPRB’s @MPLSEarthDay Facebook page and using the hashtag #MplsDIYEarthDay
