2023 Algiers Clean Sweep
April 1 |9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT
Join us on Saturday, April 1, 2023 for Algiers Clean Sweep hosted by the Algiers Economic Development Foundation. Algiers Clean Sweep is a community-wide day of service to keep Algiers clean of garbage. Our staging area will be at Brechtel Park (4401 Lennox Blvd. New Orleans, LA 70131) this year, where we will have several dumpsters, check-in, and plenty of water and snacks for volunteers.
Volunteers are needed for the following efforts:
Volunteer Registration Table:
Help us welcome volunteers, collect liability forms, replenish refreshments, answer questions, and coordinate volunteers throughout the day from the Algiers Clean Sweep Staging Area at Brechtel Park.
Clean Sweep Headquarters:
Volunteers are needed to help direct traffic to the appropriate areas for disposal and answer questions throughout the day.
Neighborhood Clean Up:
We encourage each unique and beautiful community in Algiers to gather volunteers to clean up trash in their neighborhoods. We welcome a little neighborly rivalry: which neighborhood can collect the most trash in one day?
Who can sign up? We welcome all volunteers, whether you live, work, or play in Algiers or are just visiting for the day.
Get your neighbors together and tackle litter in your neighborhood! Register as a team and let us know where you’re working. Neighborhood teams can meet at the Clean Sweep Staging Area at Brechtel Park (4401 Lennox Blvd. New Orleans, LA 70131) for trash bags, gloves, and refreshments during the kickoff ceremony at 8:30 a.m. and for additional supplies throughout the day.
Need to join a team? Sign up as an individual and we’ll be happy to find you a way to serve Algiers! Please report day-of to the volunteer registration table.
Get out of the office and get to work! Corporate teams may sign up as a group and will be assigned to a location. Corporate teams can meet at the Algiers Clean Sweep Staging Area (Brechtel Park) for trash bags, gloves, and refreshments during the kickoff ceremony at 8:30 a.m. and for additional supplies throughout the day.
Can’t volunteer this day, but need to drop off old tires, glass, paper for shredding, trash, or other debris? No problem! Please let your community know to bring items between the hours of 9:00AM and 12:00PM
