The Big Clean! A two-city clean-up extravaganza Saturday, May 6th 2017

Student volunteers from Case Western Reserve University, VASJ and neighborhood residents jump for joy after a successful street cleanup along Lakeshore Boulevard last fall!

Following the success of Green Up Cleveland’s neighborhood-wide clean up last spring, Northeast Shores Development Corporation’s Quality of Life committee is teaming up with the City of Euclid for THE BIG CLEAN – empowering neighbors in Cleveland and Euclid to take greater responsibility for improving our neighborhood and our Great Lake!

Do your part to keep your block beautiful during THE BIG CLEAN on Saturday, May 6th 2017.  The fun begins at 9:00am when volunteers gather at Villa Angela-St. Joseph (VASJ) School (18491 Lakeshore Blvd, Cleveland, OH 44119) to pick up cleanup supplies get to work!

In conjunction with Keep Euclid Beautiful, Northeast Shores and The Euclid Beach Adopt-A-Beach Team free supplies (trash bags, gloves, pickers) will be provided to all volunteers.

How to get involved:

1) Register online at as an individual or a group (your block club, church congregation, and coworkers make for great groups!)

2) Pick up supplies at the volunteer check-in location at Villa Angela-St. Joseph (VASJ) School on Saturday, May 6th between 9:00-9:30am.

3) Pick up trash within an assigned cleanup area (when registering online, please indicate if you are registering with a group or registering as an individual to be assigned where help is needed)

4) Celebrate! All volunteers are invited to a post clean-up celebration with free food, music and prizes at VASJ.  Best part of all, we’ll have a competition between Euclid and Cleveland to see who collects more bags of trash!  More details will be provided to registered volunteers.
