Spring Clean-up

Member-Required: Clean-up your ward communal spaces with your neighbors on Saturday, April 29! More details from your Ward Rep.

Connect and Clean with Your Ward!


The event will occur the morning of Saturday, April 29, 2023.

April 29-April 30, 2023

The bi-annual clean-up is scheduled for Saturday, April 29, and/or Sunday, April 30, 2023.


Your Ward Rep will email you with specific details, as each ward will have an individual meeting time that will vary by time and location. Plan on a tentative start time between 8:00am-9:00am! 

Membership Participation:

All co-op members are required to participate in the bi-annual (fall and spring) cleaning of our grounds, as segmented by ward. Non-members are also welcome to participate in our grounds’ beautification, a fun and rewarding experience. No sign-in at the event is required; however, your work is crucial toward maintaining low monthly rental rates, with our bi-annual clean-ups saving our co-op thousands of dollars. 


If your household is unable to attend, you must email your Ward Rep for instruction toward a makeup, or alternative, assignment. Fulfillment duty alternatives include pre-clean up assignments within your ward, stocking laundry room supplies, extra cleaning in Monarch way station, peace garden or fruit garden or additional laundry duty. 

Have Fun!

Reminder: CTC Compost Bins

Our co-op’s compost bins are closed until further notice. During this time, the bins are only accepting plant debris/trimmings (grass, garden weeds, leaves, small twigs). 

Please do not discard anything other than plant trimmings into the bins while closed (especially NO household food scraps!). Visit for full details and updates.
