Event Description

Spring often reveals gateways littered with debris left behind by strong winter winds and snow. Litter hurts our waterways and our community’s image. The Corridor Cleanup is an excellent opportunity for our community to shine, demonstrate stewardship of our natural resources, and take pride in the community where we live. Our volunteers have a blast cleaning up in all weather conditions, and leave with a sense of satisfaction in what they can accomplish.

Who Can Participate? The Corridor Cleanup is open to anyone interested in beautifying Davenport and protecting the health of our local waterways. No previous experience is necessary. Individuals under the age of 18 must-have adult supervision.

Description of Project: Volunteers will be picking up litter along major corridors throughout the City. Litter pickup consists of walking, bending, and placing wastes in a bag for disposal and carries little hazard. This activity will take place in the boulevards of highly trafficked areas. Volunteers will receive safety instruction and safety vests before the cleanup. Due to the proximity of traffic, some areas may not be suitable for younger children.

Weather? Weather is very variable in March. It could be a sunny day with a high of 50, or a day with rain sprinkles around 35. Past volunteers have enjoyed the cleanup and the challenge of all weather conditions. Because of difficulties associated with canceling and rescheduling, we will clear litter in light rain and low temperatures; however, it may end earlier for volunteer comfort. We will only cancel if there is a chance for significant rain, snow, high winds, or threat of lightening. Just remember to dress for conditions.

Follow-up with all registered volunteers will occur on the Monday before the cleanup as a reminder and heads up regarding any weather impacts.

What are you waiting for? Make new friends, have fun, help our community and its waterways. Register by March 15th to receive a t-shirt for your volunteer efforts.
