Great American Cleanup scheduled for April 22nd in North Port

The City of North Port is excited to announce the Great American Cleanup on Saturday, April 22, 2017! City employees along with local residents will join forces to help keep our community beautiful!

The Great American Cleanup (GAC) is the country's largest community improvement program that kicks off in more than 20,000 communities each spring. This national program engages 4 million volunteers who take action in their communities to create positive change and lasting impact. This year's Great American Cleanup in North Port will focus along City roadways.

You're invited to join the mission too! Residents interested in attending the Cleanup should meet at North Port City Hall (4970 City Hall Boulevard) at 8 a.m. on April 22. The cleanup effort is anticipated to take place from 8 a.m. to noon.

The Great American Cleanup is part of Keep Sarasota County Beautiful (KSCB), a county-wide beautification program that initiates community cleanup projects to help keep our community free of debris. The organization is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful Inc., a national, non-profit, public education organization dedicated to improving waste handling practices in American communities.

If you or someone you know would like to help out by volunteering for the Great American Cleanup, please contact the Department of Public Works at 941-240-8050.
