More details on how to get involved with a big West Seattle cleanup


After we mentioned Wednesday night that the date has been set for the long-awaited cleanup along Fauntleroy from Walking on Logs to 35th, people started asking how to sign up. Nancy Driver, who announced the date at that night’s Southwest District Council meeting, has posted this followup comment, and we’re highlighting it here in case you didn’t check back on the original report:

The Fairmount Community Association, in conjunction with the West Seattle Neighborhood Service Center (Dept. of Neighborhoods) is organizing a major clean up of the green area from the Walking on Logs sculptures up to the intersection of Fauntleroy and 35th. The date for the clean up is SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13th. The City of Seattle will be providing equipment, tools and assistance but this clean up is a substantial project and we will need lots of volunteers. Additional details will be posted on the WS Blog in the coming weeks. If you are interested in helping out with this project, please email your name, email address and phone number to This will be a fun event and a chance to help beautify your community so get your name on the volunteer list and mark your calendar.

    As a resident on the other side of Fauntleroy, it would be super if the cleanup were to extend to the east side. We may not have any sculptures behind 32nd Ave…yet! But, it is also part of the gateway to West Seattle. Just look to your left on your way in, or to your right on your way out. Icky, no?

    Hi JC – I agree both sides of the gateway need cleaning up and we’d love to be able to do both but tackling just the one side is quite a substantial project. If the September clean up is successful, then hopefully we can do the other side next year. N. Driver, Fairmount Community Association.

    Great job on the community cleanup but many places in W. Seattle (and elsewhere) still need help. We’re starting with one bucket per week and blogging about it here.

    Please feel free to join our weekly cleanup movement, it’s fun and good exercise. Drop us a line, we’d be happy to post your bucket story and pictures.
