The Clean Team is a group of dedicated volunteers who help keep Washington Square Park clean with a regular commitment to litter pick-up. Following a required orientation, volunteers will be outfitted with the tools needed to pick up stray litter at the Park. Volunteers work independently or we can match you with a pick-up partner.
The program takes place when NYC Parks staff are present: 7am-6pm, 7 days a week and you can volunteer anytime within this time frame. We recommend a shift of 45 minutes once a week. While there is flexibility in scheduling and total hours served, we do ask for a six-month commitment.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
