Fall City-Wide Clean Up to Take Place This Weekend

The City of Charleston, in partnership with the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan’s Make It Shine Program, will host city-wide clean up on Saturday, October 3. Local businesses, organizations and members of the community are invited to help clean neighborhoods throughout Charleston.


“Folks throughout our City have such pride in their neighborhoods,” said Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin. “This is a great way to beautify our Capital City and visit with friends and neighbors in a socially distant way.”


The clean up will take place in two shifts, 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. Bags and litter grabbers will be provided and can be picked up at Kanawha City Community Center, North Charleston Community Center, Roosevelt Neighborhood Center, George Washington High School and Piggly Wiggly on Bigley Avenue. Snacks, water and hand sanitizer will also be provided. Masks will also be available. Participants are asked to wear bright clothing.
