Improve your community and flex your civic pride. Engage with your neighbors. Take a direct role in keeping San Francisco great by volunteering with the Giant Sweep campaign. You can volunteer individually or put together a Giant Sweep team.

Make sure to let the Giant Sweep campaign crew know how many hours you volunteered so you can earn credit for your work and be entered into special raffles for a chance to win great Giant Sweep prizes.



Community Clean Team is San Francisco Public Works’ longest-running and largest volunteer program that keeps San Francisco beautiful through landscaping and gardening projects, graffiti removal and litter cleanup in our neighborhoods. Community Clean Team, in partnership with the Giant Sweep anti-litter campaign, needs your help to keep our city clean and green in 2018. Join us and volunteer!


The Giant Sweep adopt-a-block program is designed to track, reward, and promote the actions of individuals, organizations, and companies that adopt a San Francisco block and volunteer their time to keep it clean and beautiful.

Teams can register in four different leagues: School League (for teams affiliated with schools), Community League (for teams representing neighborhood groups, community benefit districts and non-school volunteer organizations), Business League (for corporations and merchants), and Free Agent League (for volunteers with no group affiliation).

When teams sign up, they can create a team web page to track their volunteer activities. Teams can create their own volunteer cleanup events or participate in larger Giant Sweep activities. At the end of every volunteer event, each team will report on their participation, including hours worked and the amount of litter removed from San Francisco’s streets, sidewalks and parks. 

The data will be tracked on the league leader board. Top teams will be eligible for prizes and recognition throughout the year.
