Hubs throughout Harlem, Morningside Heights and Manhattanville
Join the effort to clean up West Harlem and beyond on June 25, 2022! Once you've registered on the form, the Team Up Crew will confirm the closest resource hub based on the area you indicate in this form. On the day of the clean up event (June 25th) you will pick up cleaning supplies starting at 10am and can use the hubs to meet up with groups.
The Team Up Crew organizes resource hubs throughout the Upper West Side and West Harlem where volunteers can meet up with groups, gather free clean-up supplies, and clean their block, taking ownership for a small part of their community. This popular annual event raises public awareness about the need for cleaner streets, brings communities together, and fosters civic engagement. The event is co-sponsored by West Harlem Development Corporation and WEACT for Environmental Justice and led by the volunteer Team Up Crew.
Team Up to Clean Up started in 2020 following major budget cuts to sanitation trash collection and volunteers took cleaning the streets into their own hands. In 2021, the success of the event inspired sponsor West Harlem Development Corporation to fund an annual event and in 2022 WEACT for Environmental Justice joined as a co-sponsor.
