Reinforcing the fact that Wilmington’s greatest asset is its neighborhoods, Mayor Mike Purzycki and the City of Wilmington invite citizens and friends of Wilmington to participate in the 9th Annual Wilmington Community Cleanup Day.

Every community has areas—public parks, vacant lots, streets, and sidewalks—that are neglected, vandalized, or just plain run down. You can help clean up those places by getting involved in a community cleanup project. By playing your part in cleaning up your community, you will help make it more attractive to residents— and less attractive to criminals.

Wilmington Community Cleanup Day will take place in neighborhoods throughout the city on Saturday, April 25, 2020, from 8 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

There are two ways you can participate:

  1. Register as a group.
    Are you a member of a local civic association, church, or other community organization? Plan a cleanup targeting a neighborhood park, vacant lot, or city street.
  1. Register as an individual.
    We will connect you with a group already working in your community.
