May Trash Tag Challenge

Spring Cleaning in your corner of Lansing!

Lansing is joining the global #TrashTagChallenge 

During the month of May the Department of Neighborhoods & Citizen Engagement will have FREE City blue trash bags available (one roll per person).

If you're organizing a neighborhood effort, call our office to arrange for larger amount 483-4051. 

Bags can be picked up at 200 N. Foster Ave. Rm. 205 on Thursdays in May from 1pm-6pm. By participating, each person will also receive a SERVELansing t-shirt while supplies last.

1. Find litter in your neighborhood (vacant lots, curb & gutter, drains, etc.)
2. Take a "before" photo of the scene
3. Clean up and bag the trash
4. Then, highlight the change in an "after" picture. 

Post your photos online and tag the City on social media with #TrashTagChallenge #ServeLansing

All filled City trash bags should go curbside on your designated trash pick up day.
