Earth Day Cleanup

Saturday, April 22, 2023

Help give Downtown Syracuse a spring cleaning! Every April, we organize one of the biggest Earth Day clean-ups in the city. You're invited to roll up your sleeves to brighten the gateway entrances to Downtown Syracuse. We look forward to presenting Earth Day in its traditional in-person format on Saturday, April 22. 

Throughout the morning, Downtown Committee staff will meet volunteers at designated locations in Downtown Syracuse. If you, your company, your family, or a group of your friends would like to get involved this year, send the Downtown Committee an email at or call (315) 422-8284. We'll provide gloves and trash bags, and outfit you with stylish, green t-shirts. We'll also give you a voucher to redeem at a Downtown Syracuse restaurant to enjoy lunch. 

In previous years, the Downtown Committee’s Earth Day Clean-Up has attracted as many as 400 volunteers.

Earth Day Clean-Up Meeting Places:

  • 8:30 am:  Clinton & Adams Streets - Meet at the parking lot behind 572 South Salina Street 
  • 9:00 am:  Onondaga Creekwalk - Meet at the Walton Street extension near West Street 
    *For reference, this is across from the Syracuse University Warehouse (map )  
  • 9:30 am:  Armory Square - Meet at Sugarman Park, on the green lawn at The MOST 
  • 10:30 am:  Downtown East - Meet at 217 Montgomery Street ( map ) 

If your group would like to get involved, please email and let us know how many people will join you, preferred t-shirt sizes, and your preferred location. The deadline to sign-up to participate in our Earth Day Clean-up is Wednesday, April 12. 

Earth Day is a reminder for us to be better stewards of our earth. Here are some suggestions to help you make Earth Day every day.
