The City offers supplies through the Community Life Improvement Program (CLIP), a division of the Managing Director’s Office. You can request supplies here, though you will be responsible for picking up and delivering supplies back to the City’s warehouse during their operating hours. The following supplies are available through CLIP:
- Leaf Rakes
- Bow Rakes
- Scoop Shovels
- Digging Shovels
- Sweep Brooms
- Push Brooms
- Sidewalk Edgers (manual)
- Paper Trash Bags
You must pick up supplies the week before your cleanup and return them the week after. Note that CLIP will also help to coordinate trash pickup with the City after your event.
