Clean Sweep

Since 1994, volunteers of all ages have come together to clean up our cities, neighborhoods, and trails after the long winter on the first Saturday in May. We had over 200 volunteers participate in our 2017 Clean Sweep!

The ERC’s 2019 Clean Sweep will take place on Saturday, May 4 from 9am-1pm. Participation is free and easy! Meet at one of the following locations at 9am to register and pick up garbage bags and gloves. Complimentary breakfast snacks and coffee will be available.

  • ERC Office in Ketchum (471 Washington Ave N)
  • KB’s in Hailey (121 N Main St)
  • Memorial Park in Bellevue (between Cedar and Elm)

Fan out to pick up trash until 11:30am and then come back together with fellow participants to celebrate your good work with a free lunch generously provided by KB’s. During lunch, there will be raffle drawings and prizes awarded. This event is family friendly and youth and services groups are encouraged to participate.

Businesses can also participate in the business competition. Local businesses that participate in Clean Sweep will get one point for each member of their business team and one point for each full bag of trash picked up. After the event, points will be tallied up valley-wide, and the winning business will be announced and highlighted on the ERC’s website.

Come celebrate the ERC’s longest running program while making our community even more beautiful!
