Block units, neighborhood organizations and other community groups will be able to designate their own date for their neighborhood clean-up.

This year sees changes to the way in which Project Blitz works.  No longer are there set days and times for different regions to have their trash and waste picked up.  Block units, neighborhood organizations and other community groups will designate their own date for their neighborhood clean-up.  This is done by downloading the Blitz 2014 Project Registration Form and registering your group to participate.

Clean-up projects are not limited to neighborhood groups. Businesses, schools, churches, scout troops and other civic organizations are encouraged to adopt and area to clean up.

Brightside will lend tools (brooms, rakes and shovels) and trash bags to registered projects to assist with your clean-up project. In May, Brightside will also provide flower seedlings for planting on public property to groups with a registered clean-up project.

Register your Blitz community clean-up project with Brightside St. Louis or call Brightside at 314.772.4646. A downloadable form is also available.

Ensure your block gets the supplies it needs to be a successful clean up. Sign up today to be Captain of your block. Call (314) 772-4646 or email

For large, bulky items (furniture, appliances, etc.) please use the regularly-scheduled monthly bulk pick-up. To find out when your monthly bulk pick-up is please check the sticker on the container in your ally or on your roll-out, call Citizen Service Bureau at 314.622.4800, check the City's website, or call Brightside at 314.772.4646. 

Be a good neighbor and be a Blitz volunteer.
