City Wide Annual Clean Up

The City of Waltham is holding an annual city wide cleanup on Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. We will clean up the City of trash and litter. This is a great opportunity for residents, students and businesses to get involved in their community and help maintain a clean city we all can be proud of.  We are seeking volunteers to make this event successful.  Anyone can pitch in, students, shopkeepers, neighbors, service organizations, large corporations, churches and the youth organizations to name a few.  Volunteers may join as individuals or in groups.  The goal is to spread across the entire City and hit as many areas in need such as parks, street, sidewalks, the Riverwalks. Please contact the City’s Consolidated Public Works Department at 781-314-3800 or visit us at 165 Lexington Street for more information on this event or to sign up to volunteer, or e-mail Stewart LaCrosse at slacrosse@city.waltham.ma.us or  Janice Deveney at jdeveney@city.waltham.ma.us
