Guidelines for Litter Removal

 

There are two classifications for litter removal:  small projects and large projects. 

 

A small litter removal project is a cleanup that does NOT require additional City trash pickup.  The litter you have accumulated will fit into your 90 gallon barrel which will be picked up on your normally scheduled pick-up day.  To assist with litter removal statistics, please report the results of your event by calling 311 or completing and returning the Results Reporting Form. 

 

A large litter removal project is a cleanup that does require additional City trash pickup.  Please follow these steps:

1)      If your group has not already done so, please register your group by calling 311 or completing and returning the Mayor’s Call to Service Contract

2)      Notify the City at least two weeks in advance of the desired litter removal pick-up site by calling 311 or completing the Litter Removal On-line Request.

3)      Litter must be bagged for collection. 

4)      As soon as possible after your groups’ large litter removal project event, the City will go to the pre-stated designated site and remove the bags of litter.
5)   To assist with litter removal statistics, please report the results of your event by calling 311 or completing and returning the Results Reporting Form.

 

 You may go to Mayor’s Call to Service main web page for additional information and forms regarding this initiative.

 

**Disclaimer: The City of Albany reserves the right to determine if your clean-up event is part of the Mayor’s Call to Service.**
