City Calls On Detroiters To Help Clean 500 Alleys By End of 2020; Paid Positions Available

  • City committed to cleaning 500 alleys by end of 2020; 29 alleys cleaned to date
  • Paid positions available for city residents interested in performing alley cleanup duties
  • City seeks to partner with registered block clubs on identifying and maintaining alley cleanups

Today, city officials joined neighborhood leaders to share an update on the city’s new alley cleanup program. Launched in August 2020, the pilot program is on pace to clean 500 alleys by the end of the year. 29 alleys have been cleaned to date. The overwhelmingly positive response from residents has created more opportunity for Detroiters who would like to help beautify neighborhoods through this work, as a paid member of the cleanup crew.
