Want a great way to spend a crisp morning outside, meet some neighbors, and help keep the neighborhood looking beautiful? Come join us for the Neighborhood Cleanup!
We’ll work in small teams to pick up trash and perform other small beautification chores around the neighborhood.
We’ll provide gloves and trash bags and have some pickers. Bringing shovels, wheelbarrows, and other helpful equipment is encouraged, but not required. Make sure you put your name on your tools!
Where to go
Meet up at 9:00 am for coffee, donuts, and location assignment at the offices of ReDev:
1017 E Michigan St.
Indianapolis, IN 46202
We’ll also hand out gloves and other tools.
Want to get a head start?
Or, want to help out but not sure you can make it on Saturday?
There are a few ways you can help out in advance. If you do any pre-cleaning make sure you email [email protected] to let us know where the piles are for pick-up!
Storm drain clearing
There are a number of storm drains that need cleaning. Take a look at your street or one nearby and you might find one that needs attention. Storm drain debris can be left beside the drain in a pile. Check the weather to make sure the pile won’t wash back in before the clean-up day!
Curbs in the neighborhood often need to have the debris gathered up and weeds pulled. If you shovel or sweep debris into piles, make sure they are large piles and that there are only a couple of piles on each block. Smaller piles are harder for our cleaning partners to pick up. And keep them loose; trash bags also make them harder to gather due to the weight.
Don’t forget to renew your KIBI Adopt-A-Block
We want to maintain our high adoption rate for KIB Adopt-A-Block. Please adopt a block via the KIB website – some of you are already cleaning your blocks and you might as well enjoy the perks – free tools, free plants/trees, etc.
Nothing upcoming at the moment.
