Clean Cleveland Program

Mayor Frank G. Jackson announced the kick-off of the 2018 Clean Cleveland program.

The initiative – a series of proactive efforts to clean, repair and upgrade the city – is a result of the enhanced budget and passage of Issue 32. The kick-off took place in the East 91st Street and Superior Avenue area. Green Clean Cleveland signs will be posted in neighborhoods soon.

Clean Cleveland aligns with Mayor Jackson’s Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative, a series of legislation and programs originally launched in 2017 designed to create a better quality of life for the city’s neighborhoods.

The Healthy Neighborhoods Impact Team staffs Clean Cleveland and consists of Public Works, Public Utilities, Building & Housing, Public Health, Public Safety, and the Environmental Crimes Task Force. Teams are comprised of 30 crews, 60+ employees, 20+ trucks and 12+ miscellaneous machines. Services include pothole repair, utility cuts, street sweeping, graffiti removal, grass cutting, fire hydrant painting and more.

Residents can expect to see city crews in their neighborhoods inspecting, fixing, and cleaning in a coordinated and systematic fashion. This initiative runs through November 2018, weather permitting.

An example of Clean Cleveland activities include: waste pickup with same day pothole repair, graffiti removal, and catch basin cleaning; followed by street sweeping the following day – all in the same neighborhood.
