Volunteers Needed


We need YOU To Keep Allentown Beautiful


Everyone wants to live, work, and play in a clean and green community. It’s up to everyone 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.

With Keep Allentown Beautiful, 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!

City of Allentown employees also work year round to clean up litter. The Bureau of Recycling and Solid Waste cleans litter and trash from sidewalks, and empties litter baskets. The Bureau of Streets sweeps streets and collects leaves. The Bureau of Parks keeps City parks and many other areas clean. Other City bureaus, such as Health and Code Enforcement, also contribute to cleaning up littered properties and enforce related ordinances. Lehigh County Juvenile Probation and Allentown Police Department community service crews provide year-round litter cleanup.
