Spring Clean-Up Days

Community Clean-Up Day

Every year Swissvale Borough hosts a clean-up day in the spring. This year's Community Clean-Up day will take place on April 22nd. Volunteers are invited to gather at the Public Works Garage on McCague Street at 9:30 a.m. to receive high-visibility shirts, gloves, garbage bags, grabbers and other necessary supplies. Coffee and light refreshments will be available in the morning and lunch will be provided to all volunteers at the end of the event. Volunteers will also have a chance to win door prizes just for helping with the clean-up!
