The event will include a litter cleanup activity in the Wilburton area beginning at 9 a.m., engaging educational nature-based programs and informative resource booths focused on environmental education suitable for all ages.
Adopt-A-Street to Launch in 2024
Neighborhoods, community groups and businesses will have an opportunity to adopt a location to plan cleanup events. Locations will be approved by the city to ensure safety and that volunteer groups will receive safety orientations and appropriate safety and cleanup equipment. After the successful completion of a year’s commitment, community groups may request an Adopt-A-Street sign for their selected location, which will remain for the duration of their successful commitment. Coming Summer 2024.
Abandoned Shopping Carts and Graffiti
You can report abandoned shopping carts and unwelcome graffiti via the MyBellevue app or the MyBellevue portal.
Summer 2023 Cleanups
Thank you for coming out to help with the two launch cleanup events in Downtown and Factoria! With about 130 volunteers, we were able to meet neighbors and clean the areas that we all enjoy. Please consider coming out for future events and do your part every day by reducing unnecessary use, and plan to reuse and recycle items to Keep Bellevue Beautiful!
