Clean City Minneapolis 

Minneapolis is a pretty amazing place. With so many things to do and sights to see, what’s not to love? But let’s face it, our beautiful City has some unsightly messes. So let’s all work together to tidy it up. With just a little help, we’ll make this place shine.

The Clean City Minneapolis program, operated through the City of Minneapolis’ Division of Solid Waste and Recycling, offers multiple ways to get involved. Whether you’re working alone or as part of a group, it’s easy, and it all adds up to enhance our neighborhoods and our standards of living.

It’s the Minnesota nice and clean thing to do.

For questions, contact the Solid Waste and Recycling Division’s Clean City Coordinator at 612-673-2789.
