Offer a neighborhood garbage can cleanout service. Wash down and pressure wash neighbors’ city trash cans for a donation of $10-$20 each
Conduct the fundraiser on the first day after garbage is picked up so that the cans are empty.. Send signup forms around ahead of time, and then ask again as you pick up the garbage cans. Load the empty garbage cans on a trailer and take them to the cleaning station. Write the address on a piece of duct tape on each can so you don’t mix them up. The troop committee arranges to have pressure washers on hand (many families own them). Suit the boys up with rubber gloves, sponges, and soapy water to wash down the lids, handles, etc. Then pressure wash the inside of each can. Return the clean cans to the homes.
