Neighborhood Cleanups

For Immediate Release (4/13/2020): Muncie Sanitary District postpones Neighborhood Cleanups Until June due to COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Muncie Sanitary District is postponing the spring neighborhood cleanups that were scheduled for Saturday, May 9th and Saturday, May 16th, 2020 until a later date in June 2020. 

MSD will evaluate and assess the current status of the pandemic in May and early June and will communicate with neighborhood presidents about the new dates for the cleanups via email and mail and post updated information through our website and social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter).

If you would like an application or further information on participating in a neighborhood cleanup, please contact the MSD Administration Office at 765-213-6468 or email with questions.

Cleanup Dates

The following dates have been approved by the Muncie Sanitary District as your scheduled neighborhood cleanup day. There are no rain dates. ALL CLEAN-UPS ARE FROM 8:00 A.M. UNTIL 11:45 A.M. (THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS).

Spring 2020 Dates

Postponed until June 2020 due to COVID-19 pandemic

Fall 2020 Dates

Saturday, September 12th and Saturday, September 19th, 2020

Neighborhoods requesting a truck must have at least six people who will definitely participate in the cleanup, rain or shine. At least two of these people must be at the truck site/starting point by 8:00 a.m. to meet the truck. If you have requested that the truck travel the neighborhood, alleys or streets, a resident must be on hand to go with the truck to help load the trash. Residents should not expect MSD employees to pick up all the trash throughout the neighborhood without assistance during the cleanup.

The Muncie Sanitary District will not make a return trip the week after your clean up to pick up piles of items set out by residents who did not help with your clean up. ZERO TIRES WILL BE PICKED UP. Street Sweeping will not be done until the Monday following your Neighborhood’s scheduled cleanup date.

Please remember that your neighborhood must have the above-mentioned number of volunteers present on the day of your scheduled clean up. If you do not have the correct number of volunteers or if this is a no-show event, your neighborhood is subject to a probation period for upcoming events and/or removal from future neighborhood cleanups.
