Fall Civic Sweep (and Party) in Park Slope

Celebrate Fall with Park Slope Civic Council

Make a clean sweep of your home and your neighborhood by joining the Park Slope Civic Council at its annual autumn beautification, clean-up and recycling event: the Fall Civic Sweep on Sunday, October 16.

Put on your old clothes and come to the sidewalk in front of the John Jay High School Building on 7th Avenue between 4th and 5th Streets from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (rain or shine) to join other volunteers in picking up litter, mulching trees and weeding 7th Avenue tree pits.

The event includes refreshments and bluegrass music by Vincent Cross and Good Company. “I Made Park Slope Cleaner Today” stickers will be given to all volunteers. Community Service vouchers will also be available. The Council will be giving away daffodil bulbs and a limited supply of block clean-up kits.

“This year is really exciting because we have some new partners on board,” said Candace Woodward, event organizer, "including Transportation Alternatives, who will be on hand to promote bicycle safety and offering affordable bicycle light sets for purchase."

Another partner, Lower East Side Ecology Center, will be available for electronic equipment recycling.More here: Park Slope Civic Council
