Community Cleanups

Organize a cleanup in your neighborhood during the World Cleanup Day

Each year, we celebrate and recognise citizen power through an annual nationwide cleanup day in September. It all began in 2013 when 15,430 volunteers took part in local cleanups across Nepal. Since then, the cleanup days have taken place each year and so far 125,000 people have collected just over half a million kilos of waste! These community cleanup events are a catalyst to encourage individuals, communities, and organizations to come together to manage their waste better and to run ongoing cleanup activities in their own neighbourhoods.

You’ll be cleaning up on the same day as World Clean Up Day, where people across the world clean up waste. 150 countries are involved which makes it the biggest positive civic action the world has seen. This year, the annual nationwide cleanup will take place on. Saturday, September 15 2018 / Bhadra 30 2075. Join us and be part of this incredible global action!

Every year the Nationwide Cleanup gets bigger and bigger! See an overview of the achievements so far with all of your help. We hope to get more sites cleaned up in more districts this year and we need your participation.

What is a Community Cleanup?

A Community Cleanup brings people together to remove illegally dumped waste, the remains of any burnt waste and litter to improve the environment. Neighborhoods where waste is dumped or burnt have serious public health and environmental issues due to the unsanitary living conditions.

During the cleanup the waste should be segregated so that recycling can happen too.

How do I get involved?

Clean up Nepal conducts a mass clean up event centrally in Kathmandu valley. However, it is reliant on its partners to organise cleanups outside the valley. In 2017, we were incredibly thankful to our 8 National Partners and 293 Local Partners who organised 241 cleanups across 33 districts.

We are hoping to maximise the participation this year throughout Nepal, to ensure cleaner neighbourhoods and increased awareness on dangers associated with improper waste disposal. We eagerly look forward to your help.
