Maybe you have leaves and sticks piled high in your backyard, or maybe your backyard is just one giant pile of sticks and leaves! If your yard is looking a little worse for wear, chances are that so are your neighbors’, and it’s true that many hands make light work.

Each neighbor’s yard contributes to the overall look of your neighborhood, and most of us want to live in a neighborhood that is safe, well-cared for, and looks nice. However, cleaning up your yard often means raking leaves, picking up sticks, and other tasks that generate yard waste, which cannot be disposed of with regular trash.

It can be hard to keep track of which day the township has yard waste pick-up, and what if you’re going out of town that day? These are all good reasons for you and your neighbors take matters into your own hands and organize a neighborhood clean-up. 

Steps to Hosting a Neighborhood Cleanout

  1. Create a Buzz: Choose a date and print off some flyers. Distribute them around the neighborhood and start spreading the word about your plans!
  2. Rent a Dumpster: If everyone in the neighborhood contributes to the cost, a dumpster won’t put you out! Plus, it’s less expensive to haul yard waste than regular trash. 
  3. Gather Other Supplies You May Need: While you’re talking about splitting the cost of a dumpster, you may also want to consider going in together on other supplies like mulch or garden tools. This is also a good opportunity to take inventory. Maybe someone has a fancy tractor they’re willing to share, or extra edging they can donate to a neighbor’s yard. It’s also a nice idea to supply your neighbors with water and snacks on the day of the clean-up.
  4. Throw a Party: Finish off the day with a cookout to thank your neighbors for all their hard work. A fun party at the end of the day is a fabulous incentive! 

Cleaning up the neighborhood as a team is a great way to create a sense of community. You and your neighbors will have the chance to get to know each other, and those relationships will inspire you and your neighbors to look out for one another and take pride in your community.
