Clean-Ups, Service Days & Celebrations

Green Up Day:  A statewide event that brings community volunteers of all ages together to clean up Burlington’s parks, streets and public lands. Held on the first Saturday of May, this event is family friendly, and a great way to get involved in our community.  This year's event will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2018.  Pre-registration is not required. Please visit Burlington Parks, Recreation, and Waterfront page for more infomation. 

Neighborhood Clean-ups: Clean-ups are a great way to spruce up your street and home. With a combined effort residents of a street can make drastic improvements in just one day. Joining together makes the work fun and provides the opportunity for you and your neighbors to get to know each other. In addition, building pride and investing in cleanup work will inspire everyone to keep things clean all year long.

Spring Move Out Project - This year's SMOP is on May 23rd 2018:  The Spring Move Out Project (SMOP) is a collaboration between the City of Burlington, the University of Vermont, Recycle North and Chittenden Solid Waste District and the community to help people who are moving at the end of May to recycle household items, furniture, clothing, books and food. With two central drop off points on Loomis Street and lower Buell, people are welcome to drop things off and pick things up for their new apartments. At the end of the day, all remaining items are donated to non-profits for resale or appropriately recycled.  For more information: UVM Office of Student & Community Relations (802) 656-9405,
