Operation Clean Sweep



Operation Clean Sweep is coming to Burlington April 28 – May 6 2021.  


Clean Sweep is vital to Lake health and our health. It keeps the roads safer by clearing them of debris and keeps our infrastructure in better shape by limiting flooding from clogged storm drains. We NEED your help this year.
