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 so many amazing volunteers participate in 2023, can’t wait to see what we can do in 2024!

The ERC’s 2024 Clean Sweep will take place on Saturday, May 4th 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 and recycling bags and gloves. Complimentary breakfast snacks and coffee will be available.

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

Businesses can also participate in the competition as Teams. Teams will receive one point for each member of their business team, one point for each member who 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.
