Improving the Community Image While Providing Work Opportunities for Our Homeless Neighbors
“It’s really worth the investment for your business,” says Bob Glass, owner of Father & Son Jewelry (126 E. Main St.), speaking of being a Proud Sponsor of Medford’s own Clean Sweep program. “I’ve seen downtown go from really garbagey-to-ultraclean as a result of Clean Sweep. It looks really nice. As a downtown merchant, I hope and pray you’ll sign up to sponsor Clean Sweep!”

Clean Sweep is a unique job training program that improves the overall image of our community while providing work opportunities for our homeless neighbors. Clean Sweep crews pick up trash on the streets and neighborhoods of Medford, Ashland, Talent, Phoenix as well as other important environmental areas such as the Bear Creek watershed in Southern Oregon!
Since our inception in September 2018, we have cleaned up over 2 tons of trash from the downtown streets and sidewalks of Medford, and 6 of our original workers have moved on to become employed!
Clean Sweep picks up an average of 32 pounds of trash and cleans 4 streets per day.
As frequently as necessary, we will come and pick up all your cans and bottles. All proceeds go directly to helping people experiencing homelessness to get needed housing and employment services.
Thank you to The Britt Festival and Trader Joe’s! Your can and bottle donations help more homeless get skills and a track record!
