We here at The B-Town Blog believe in helping our community, and that’s why we’re encouraging every one of our Readers to take part in this year’s Burien “Clean Sweep,” a fun, satisfying event which takes place on Saturday, April 24th from 8am – 1pm, beginning at Fire District #2 Station at 15100 8th Ave SW.

Last year over 400 people participated in removing 8.15 tons of garbage from Burien’s streets, parks and commercial areas, so let’s see if we can top that!

You can do whatever your heart (or body) desires (or allows), including:

  • Picking up litter
  • Planting flowers
  • Trimming shrubs
  • Pulling weeds
  • Sweeping
  • Raking
  • And just cleaning in general!

Here are the details:

WHAT: Burien Clean Sweep

WHEN: Saturday, April 24th from 8am – 1pm

WHERE: Starts at Fire District #2 Station at 15100 8th Ave SW.

INFO: From the Discover Burien website:

Burien Clean Sweep is a city-wide clean-up morning.

Volunteers gather at 8:00 a.m. at the fire station and one or two other staging areas for coffee, juice, donuts, etc. They are then assigned to a team and given gloves, garbage bags, buckets, brooms and safety vests. Volunteers are dispatched to an area of the city to clean up trash.

At Noon the crews return to the fire station for a hot dog lunch and raffle with prizes donated by area businesses.

The event ends at 1:00 p.m.

Last year 8.15 tons of garbage were collected.

Volunteer registration is at Burien Fire Station #2 at 8 am – must be 18 or older (or have a parent sign for them).

  1. Clean Sweep will bring hundreds of volunteers to help give Burien some Spring Cleaning. We hope that this year will bring out a record number of volunteers willing to pitch in and pitch out the trash and debris that accumulates throughout the year.

    For business owners, this is a call to arms (with buckets, brooms and rakes) to get out there and spruce up your business. Step outside and take a look at your store or office and give it a cold hard once-over. Could it use a fresh coat of paint, some flowers, a new sign, window cleaning, or just some simply tidying up? Now is the time to get out there and do it.

    Let us know what you are doing out there. Make your comments right here on the B-Town Blog.
