It’s been a harsh winter and some of Philadelphia’s streets are looking pretty rough. In addition to a lot of potholes, there’s a lot of litter and trash that has been building up on the streets, parks and in many of the city’s empty lots.

This year’s citywide Philly clean up, organized by the Philly Streets Department, will kick off on April 7 with over 130 cleanup projects located in neighborhoods across the city. Last year, more than 13,000 volunteers helped collect 1,014,540 pounds of trash and 23,341 pounds of recycling across the city.

Community organizations and individuals can register clean up projects until March 21 here.

Projects include cleaning up streets, parks, empty lots and more. While a lot of the cleanups will focus on trash removal, some will involve planting trees, painting, raking leaves, and more.
