Volunteer Application

If you’re volunteering to help clean up the City of Pittsburgh, the Department of Public can help! Please use one of the applications below to gain approval for your volunteer clean-up event in our parks, trails and right of ways. Once submitted, we will review your application and contact you with approval via email. 

Thank you for your interest and your efforts to give back to your community! If you have any questions regarding volunteering, please contact us at volunteer@pittsburghpa.gov.

To comply with safety regulations set forth by Governor Wolf's "Stay at Home" order for Allegheny County, we are asking all planned litter clean-up events to be cancelled or postponed. Department of Public Works is currently unable to provide supplies or services to volunteer events until our state of emergency has passed.
