Meet the Clean Collaborative — the initiative approved by Louisville Metro Council in January 2021 to clean city roadways and litter hotspots.
Clean Collaborative by the numbers:
- The program began with $1.5 million in funding and 13 employees.
- Louisville Waste Management District, which is a Clean Collaborative stakeholder, receives $380,000 in grant funding every year. These funds help to provide extra litter collection, supplies for cleanup events + more.
- Since the project was created, groups have cleaned 5,500+ miles of roads, collected 25,000 bags of trash and removed 3,700+ works of graffiti around Derby City.
Join the collaborative by making a commitment to not litter, report illegally dumped junk to Metro311, and dispose of large items properly. For more ways to keep Louisville clean, visit the Clean Collaboration website.
