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!
