20 Minute Cleanup

April 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


April 12
8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The 20 Minute Cleanup is an annual Howard County spring clean­ing project. Busi­nesses, schools, com­mu­nity groups, neigh­bors and indi­vid­u­als help keep trash out of the envi­ron­ment. Par­tic­i­pat­ing in the 20 Minute Cleanup is easy. Just pick a loca­tion, ask some peo­ple to join you, and then safely pick up the lit­ter that you find.

Use your reg­u­lar trash and recy­cling pickup ser­vice to dis­pose of what you col­lect. Then please send an email to 20minutecleanup@howardcountymd.gov with the num­ber of peo­ple who par­tic­i­pated and how many bags of trash and recy­cling col­lected. Pic­tures are encour­aged! We post the results and thank all the par­tic­i­pants on this web­site. The day of the event there will likely be a bit of local buzz about it on social media.  Share using @livegreenhoward and #20minutecleanup.

If April 12, is not a good day for you to orga­nize a cleanup, any day in April is just fine.  Just let us know about your cleanup and we will include you in the over­all count and thank you list.
