Clean Cities Sweep

Clean Cities Sweep School Projects

March through April; Grades Kindergarten through 12th

Charleston Charter School. CCS 2009 (4).JPGClean Cities Sweep takes place each year throughout March and April. Students and teachers plan and conduct cleanup and beautification projects that positively impact the community and environment. KCB lends litter cleanup supplies to registered schools. The first 10 schools that register projects for Clean Cities Sweep, can also request $100 worth of other cleanup/beautification project specific supplies. Once registered, project coordinators will receive a confirmation email/phone call to further coordinate their Clean Cities Sweep project and the pickup of supplies. The registration link is at the bottom of this web page.

At the conclusion of the projects, schools submit a decorated tri-fold poster illustrating how their project impacted the school and the community. Student posters are used to assess the impact of Clean Cities Sweep projects.
