The second annual WeCycle Spring Cleanup Rally will take place Saturday, April 23.

WeCycle founder and organizer David Fleming said the event is meant to bring a “conscious awareness” to the state of the community through clean-up efforts.

Founded in 2019 as a “community revitalization cleaning company,” the longtime Austin resident said he hopes the event spreads awareness about cleanliness throughout Austin. 

“We hope to be able to get more sponsors and investors, so this can become something we do on more than an annual basis,” Fleming said. 

In addition to cleaning up the Soul City Corridor, the rally will also feature music, activities for kids, BBQ for attendees, gift bags, and a raffle opportunity. A police escort will accompany volunteers on the route. 

Ald. Chris Taliaferro (29th) and local Austin community organizations like Austin African American Business Networking Association (AAABNA) supported last year’s event. 

“We welcome everyone to come out and volunteer and also take part in our celebration rally at the end of the event,” Fleming said. “This is for the community.” 

The meeting point location this year will be at 5922 W. Division St. The group will meet at 10 a.m. and will finish on the Soul City Corridor at 5840 W. Chicago Ave., with the festivities closing out the rally.
