Community Stewards Program
Help Keep Flagstaff Beautiful
The City of Flagstaff relies on the willing assistance of hundreds of volunteers to assist with keeping our neighborhoods, trails, parks, and streets litter and graffiti free. The Flagstaff Sustainability Program offers programs for citizens to get involved in to make our city a better place to live.
Winter Snowplay Stewards:
Next Clean Up Event: Thursday, January 28, 2021 12:00pm - 2:00 pm.
Meet at JW Powell and Lonetree at 12:00 pm and/or 1:00 pm at Hwy 180 and Peakview pullout. Dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes and your mask. We will supply volunteers with trash bags, trash pickers, buckets, disposable gloves. Social distancing will be required as well as wearing masks.
Join us to help educate snowplayers on proper waste disposal. We head out after snow events + weekends to spread the word about putting your waste in the right place! We also conduct litter clean ups at popular snowplay areas around Flagstaff. Contact Marrisa Molloy at Marissa.Molloy@flagstaffaz.gov or by calling (928) 213-2152 to get on our communication list for future clean up efforts!
30 Days Albert's Way!
Because our cleanups have been limited to individuals and households since March, we are launching a competition for the month of September called 30 Days Albert's Way! Using the Litterati app, we challenge you to pick up as much litter around Flagstaff as you can while following social distancing and mask guidelines. This not only helps us to keep Flagstaff litter free, it will also help us identify litter hotspots.
Our goal is to beat last year's 12,207 total pieces of litter picked up during the One a Day in May challenge!
- Download the Litterati app through Google or Apple
- Immediately join the challenge using code "ALBERTSWAY"
- Take a picture of each piece of litter you pick up through the app throughout the month of September!
There will also be prizes for the top three litter pickers at the end of September that will support local Flagstaff businesses.
- 1st place: $80 gift card to Winter Sunday Trading Company
- 2nd place: $50 gift card to Bright Side Bookshop
- 3rd place: $30 gift card to Eat n' Run Cafe
Join us for the fun!
Community Stewards Program
Are you interested in taking ownership in your community? The Community Stewards Program keeps a list of available trails, streets, and open spaces that you or your group may adopt for at least two years. We can also connect your group with a one-time community clean-up project.
Please see this MAP for available FUTS and Avenue sections for adoption.
In order to become a steward, or host a one-time community clean-up project, please email Marissa Molloy or call at 928-213-2152. The application process is very simple and the program is rewarding.
Please note: To ensure our volunteers' health and safety, we are currently only supporting cleanups with individuals or households.
