Every Litter Bit Helps Campaign invites individuals to participate in Giant Effort to Clean Indy’s Streets

What: 
Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, in partnership with Mayor Greg Ballard and the City of Indianapolis, is once again coordinating the annual citywide cleanup effort to kick off the neighborhood cleanup program called the Great Indy Cleanup. On Saturday, April 25th, over 70 neighborhood groups/organizations will bring thousands of volunteers to our city streets, alleys and public spaces to pick up thousands of pounds of litter and debris. This year, KIB invites individuals to get involved by signing up to be a part of the Every Litter Bit Helps campaign on April 25th.

Who: 
The campaign is now open to everyone in Indianapolis. Even if they are not members of a participating community group, individuals and families may take part.

When: 
Registration begins April 6th. Please visit one of KIB’s distribution partners between April 6th and April 25th to sign up and receive your supplies.

Where: 
On your block, in your neighborhood park, at your church or school – fill a bag with litter anywhere in Indianapolis to help keep it beautiful. Then simply place the bag at your curb for your weekly trash pickup! Visit one of KIB’s distribution partners to sign up and receive a trash bag and gloves.

Distribution partners: 
All YMCA of Greater Indianapolis locations
All Marion County Public Library locations
All Marion County Papa John’s Restaurant locations

Why: 
Gathering together to clean Indy’s neighborhoods helps to foster pride in communities, develop relationships amongst neighbors, and deter crime – and it makes Indianapolis a healthier and more beautiful place to live! Please join us, because every litter bit helps!

Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc. is a private, non-profit organization uniting people to beautify the city and improve its environment. In 2008, KIB worked with more than 44,000 volunteers on 500 community projects.
