Community Clean Up programs help a lot in maintaining the cleanliness and orderliness of a place – despite not having sufficient funds for paying cleaners. These may already be regular events in many countries but, I am fascinated with the ideas in this article that are worth duplicating:

Millions of Americans are celebrating clean, safe, and healthy communities this spring as they volunteer for Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup. Now in its 22nd year, the Great American Cleanup is the nation’s largest annual community improvement program. More than 30,000 events are being planned in more than 15,000 communities. http://www.murraycountyga.org/index.aspx?NID=436
Group activities can be fun when neighbors are helping each other in disposing things that they don’t need anymore. They do not have to go to the trash all in one – because someone’s trash might be a treasure to others! Adapt the concept of a garage sale for the whole community. It can be a massive bargain! At the end of the day whether those belongings went to another owner or not, it is good to feel that there are no more clutters or useless possessions piling up in our storage rooms – aside from living in a truly clean community.
