Earth Day turns 50 in 2020 - celebrate at the “Big Clean” on Saturday, April 25

Get out your calendars and save the date for the fourth annual Collinwood v. Euclid “Big Clean” on Saturday, April 25th, 2020 from 9am to 1pm at Villa Angela – St. Joseph High School.

This year, Earth Day turns the big 5-0 and in honor of the occasion, more than 100 million people are expected to take part in a community clean-up in April 2020. The “Big Clean” is our neighborhood's annual day to pick up trash as a community (bags, gloves and pickers provided!) and celebrate our successes with free food and give-a-ways. The free event grows in popularity every year and all ages and abilities are encouraged to join in.

Let’s try to sweep the “competition” this year – we came VERY close to beating the City of Euclid in 2019 and with your help, Collinwood could win in 2020!

Registration for individuals and organizations is highly preferred and greatly appreciated in advance of the event. All participants regardless of City, should visit the City of Euclid’s website at and click the “Big Clean” icon to be routed to the registration page.
