Project Clean Sweep

Monday, April 24, 2023

25th Annual Clean Sweep Project


The 2023 Project Clean Sweep, our popular and successful beautification program, is a program sponsored by the City of Show Low to help our citizens rid their property of unwanted items such as green waste and abandoned vehicles.  This project’s primary goal is to make our city more fire-safe and attractive.  Project Clean Sweep helps you be fire-safe by sponsoring events that will protect your home and your loved ones.  This project could also increase your property value by making your home more attractive and convenient to eliminate unwanted items. Please take advantage of these services and show our pride in our community.
