PHILLIPS CLEAN SWEEP
Second Saturday of October
This is an annual event in partnership with Minneapolis Solid Waste and Recycling and composting to clean up the community. Midtown Phillips partners with three other neighborhoods in order to clean up the Phillips area and instill a sense of community accountability and pride. In 2018, over 750 volunteers came out to help pick up trash and meet neighbors. Local businesses supported this event through donations of food and supplies. City, county and neighborhood non-profits set up project displays during lunch to provide an educational component to this event. We also raise funds to provide 6 garbage trucks in the 4 Phillips neighborhoods to pick up tires, furniture, appliances, electronics, household construction, old carpet Free of Charge to all residents!
