Volunteers Needed


We need YOU To Help Keep Allentown Beautiful!


Everyone wants to live, work, and play in a clean and green community. It’s up to everyone to help to improve the overall quality of life for us all.

Picking up litter is a simple and easy activity. It is also a great opportunity to bring the community together for the betterment of our blocks, our neighborhoods, and our city.

Through Keep Allentown Beautiful's Community Cleanups initiative, the City of Allentown will provide cleanup tools and resources at no cost to our residents. If you are interested in having a Community Cleanup in your neighborhood, please complete our request form linked below.

Thank you for Keeping Allentown Beautiful!

Thank You Volunteers!

Keep Allentown Beautiful would like to extend a HUGE "Thank You" to all of our 2023 Community Cleanup groups and volunteers. From January through November, we have recorded over 650 volunteers who cleaned up nearly 1,500 bags of trash and litter from the streets of Allentown, along with almost 50 tires and numerous TVs, car parts, furniture, and construction debris. These numbers are truly astounding, and we are so so proud of our hardworking and dedicated community members. We are looking forward to keeping Allentown beautiful with you in 2024!
