Mayor to Announce Clean Community Winners

The mayor will announce the winners of the citywide competition on Oct. 27 the fall clean up day.

The Mayor’s Fall Clean Up is set for Oct. 27 and 71 city communities will wait to see if they’re one of four selected to win a $5,000 first prize in the Clean Community Competition.

As part of the Mayor’s Fall Clean Up, communities are asked to focus on one area in need of clean up, call 311 to register and then stack all debris and waste cleaned from the area at a designated spot for pick up on Oct. 29, according to a news release.

During the clean up day, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will announce the four first and second place communities from each of the city’s quadrants that will be awarded $5,000 for first place and $1,000 for second place.

The winners of the competition, which started with the Mayor’s Spring Clean Up on April 21, will be selected based on a neighborhood’s increase in recycling tonnage, the increase of a community using trashcans with tight fitting lids and drops in request for alley and street cleaning.
