Great American Clean Up Registration Form

Keep Charlotte Beautiful will contact participants after their event. Please keep track of the number of volunteers in your group as well as the amount of trash collected, trees planted, streets cleaned, etc.

Additionally, please call 311 to schedule pickup of your items.

IMPORTANT REGULATIONS AND RESTRICTIONS AROUND COLLECTIBLES
 
Separate Your Collectibles
It is very important to keep collectible items in distinct separate piles at the pick-up location. Please separate regular garbage from bulky items (appliances and tires are considered special bulky items and need to be in an additional pile on their own). For a complete listing of bulky items, click here.
 
Items NOT Picked Up by Solid Waste

Yard Waste and Recyclables
Please note that yard waste and recyclables will NOT be picked up at the clean-up location but residents can place yard waste or recyclables at a private address to be picked up during their neighborhood’s regularly scheduled collection day.
