2020 Fall Sweep Cleanup - Volunteer Safely During COVID-19

Fall Sweep Cleanup 2020

This year’s event will not be a traditional gathering; however, volunteers are invited to pick up litter at locations throughout Mansfield anytime between Oct. 11 - Oct. 31.

With COVID-19 precautions in mind, we are working on our processes to ensure the Fall Sweep follows all safe distancing guidelines. Social distancing efforts will include drive-through early supply pickup with the staff wearing masks, letting participants choose their own area and time for cleanup and non-returnable trash grabbers supplied for volunteers.

  • Choose  your own public location anywhere within Mansfield city limits, keeping in mind that safety is the primary concern.  
  • Be mindful of traffic flow, sidewalks and social distancing guidelines.
  • Limit your group to individuals,  family units or "social bubbles" of no more than 6 - 10.
  • Participants 10 years and older should wear masks and gloves.
  • Remember to stay 6 feet apart from others outside your household.
  • Read  PPE Litter Cleanup Guidance and Individual Cleanup Guidance  before conducting your cleanup.
  • To request free trash grabbers, trash bags and gloves, and schedule a contactless supply pick up, fill out this form.
  • Dispose of your filled trash bags with your residential curbside trash on your normally scheduled trash pick up days. Remember that gloves and disposable masks should be thrown away, not recycled.
  • When you finish your cleanup, complete this form and submit a picture of your cleanup. Groups who submit cleanup reports will receive recognition on the Keep Mansfield Beautiful Facebook page.

Distanced, but together, we can still make a postive impact on Manfield and our local waterways.

For additional information or questions contact Rebecca Sales at 817-728-3610 or rebecca.sales@mansfieldtexas.gov.

Thanks for helping to Keep Mansfield Beautiful!
