September 12-26, 2020

Each fall, Greensboro Beautiful volunteers get litter out of our waterways, off our streets, and out of our neighborhoods! Scout troops, community organizations, faith communities, schools, businesses, and families take part in the cleanup, showing our community's concern for cleaner waterways and public areas.

This year, Greensboro Beautiful is making every effort to be responsible in its planning and coordination approach due to necessary precautions and concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic. For this reason, we encourage families and close friends to participate – small groups of individuals who have felt safe and comfortable spending time together over the last many months.

  • Participating groups should not exceed 10 individuals.
  • Choose a cleanup site of your own, or select from our online litter hot spots map.
  • Select any time from September 12-26 to conduct your cleanup.
  • Sign up using the online signup form.
  • To minimize contact, participants are asked to provide their own trash bags and/or plastic grocery bags for collection, and gloves for protection. (Greensboro Beautiful will be unable to provide shared cleanup supplies such as safety vests, grabbers, etc.)
  • Submit photos from your cleanup, report the number of bags collected, the amount of time it took to clean up your site, and total number of people on your team.
  • Above all else, be safe! And thank you!

Big Sweep Greensboro is a project of Greensboro Beautiful in partnership with the City of Greensboro, and is sponsored, in part, by the Rotary Clubs of Greensboro.
