GREAT INDY CLEANUP
Lend A Hand & Keep Your Neighborhood Beautiful
KIB's Great Indy Cleanup is an anti-litter program in partnership with the City of Indianapolis designed to combat heavy litter and debris that has accumulated in public spaces such as streets, alleys, greenspaces and waterways.
The 2013 Great Indy Cleanup season has come to an end. Thanks to the thousands of volunteers who collected 865 TONS of litter and illegal dumping in our communities!

A special thanks to Mayor Greg Ballard, the folks in the Mayor's Office and the Department of Public Works for the amazing resources provided for this program. Also, to South Side Landfill, who makes this program possible by accepting 865 tons of trash as a donation to Keep Indianapolis Beautiful and these hardworking residents. THANK YOU!
The Great Indy Cleanup program runs weekends from April through October and provides dumpsters, trash bags and gloves while supplies last. Community groups may sign up for up to two cleanups per year.
The City of Indianapolis/Department of Public Works will make 20 dumpsters available for community cleanups every weekend in October. Neighborhoods are invited to join this citywide effort any weekend in October to tackle litter and celebrate the conclusion of another successful season of the Great Indy Cleanup!
The dumpster provided is NOT for personal use (cleaning out garages, basements, homeowner association property, etc.) or the personal use of volunteers/neighbors. Disposal of the collected trash is donated by South Side Landfill, and is intended for cleanup of public spaces only. Failure to comply jeopardizes the neighborhood's ability to benefit from future resources from KIB.
