Community support is critical in creating a clean and attractive neighborhood. Each year we invite our partners and supporters to help clean the district through monthly Community Cleanup events and the annual C-ID Spring Clean. Community Cleanup events and C-ID Spring Clean encourages volunteers to get involved, meet their neighbors, and create team building by helping cover or clean graffiti, pick up litter, improve community gardens, and paint storefronts to make our district sparkle.
To get involved in our cleaning efforts, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're hosting a monthly litter pick-up event & graffiti removal event in the C-ID, if your interested, please register for our events below!
- Monthly Community Litter Pick-up Event *active
- Monthly Afternoon Graffiti Paint-Out *paused until Spring of 2023

Historically, Spring Clean is a single-day annual event where volunteers and community members come together to help clean & beautify the Chinatown International-District (C-ID) community. Volunteers are able to particpate in various activities including: Litter Pick-up, graffiti cover-up removal, window cleaning, and other beautification projects.
If you or your organization would like to sponsor Spring Clean, please reach out to email@example.com.

SHARPS EDUCATION AND PICKUP PROGRAM
Sharps are used needles that require special handing to remove safely. CIDBIA staff can provide education to staff at businesses and residents on how to safely dispose of sharps found in businesses or the public right of way. CIDBIA can also direct Seattle Surface Cleaners to pick up needles found in front of businesses. CIDBIA can also provide approved sharps containers and take back full and sealed sharps containers for proper disposal.
For more information or to coordinate education and pickup, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
