Clean Sweep 2017

The "Plavec Group" in Huntington Woods
People across Shelton hit the streets, parks, schools, and waterways for the 10th annual Shelton Clean Sweep, held the week of Earth Day (April 22). There were twenty-five registered cleanups around town and many more that were not registered. Many thanks to everyone involved!

Girl Scout Troop 60672 cleaned up Mohegan School
It's hard to believe the first Shelton Clean Sweep was ten years ago, and the 10-year old kids who participated are now adults. We hope the participation of so many kids will foster an appreciation of litter-free parks and streets in future generations.

Tighe & Bond employees cleaned up Isinglass Road.

We encourage people to report their cleanups, although it seems most people would prefer not to. The 'report a clean-up' form is for all litter cleanups across Shelton, not just for Clean Sweep, and helps us determine how much is getting picked up. The link to report is easy to find on the webpage, on the left margin. Seventeen cleanups involving 122 people were reported via this link during the Clean Sweep 2017 period:
