Clean Up Days
The Frederick Public Works Department offers programs in April and October for Frederick residents to dispose of unwanted items, electronics, and tree limbs.
Fall Clean Up Days - October Programs and Details
FRA Refresh Day - New for Fall 2023
Join us for the first ever FRA Refresh Day on Saturday, October 14 as part of our Clean Up Days Program. Let's roll up our sleeves, grab our gardening gloves, and show some love to our Frederick Recreation Area. Projects include light landscaping, installing picnic tables, general weed removal, and litter pickup. This is a fantastic opportunity to foster community connection as we work to care for our parks and trails. Plus - lunch will be provided for all volunteers.
Team up with us and sign up for this volunteer opportunity on the Frederick Volunteer Portal.
