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 350 volunteers participate in 2019!

The ERC’s 2021 Clean Sweep will take place on Saturday, May 1st from 9 am-12 pm. Participation is free and easy! Meet at one of the following three clean sweep locations at 9 am to register and pick up garbage bags and gloves. Complimentary breakfast snacks and coffee will be available. We request that participants wear masks and we ask participants to socially distance six feet or more from others while participating.

Clean Sweep includes meeting locations in Bellevue, Hailey, and Ketchum. Maps, supplies, prizes, and lunch coupons provided by KB’s are available. Participate with your family, on your own, with your co-workers, teammates, or neighbors.

Businesses can also participate in the business competition. Teams will receive one point for each member of their business team, one point for each member that is dressed up, 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.
