The cleanup — Baltimore's Spring Cleanup 9 removed 454 tons of debris from city neighborhoods, according to city public works officials.

The cleanup - held April 19 - attracted more than 5,500 volunteers from 241 communities across the city. Volunteers and city workers cleaned lots, alleys and sidewalks, while also removing graffiti and weeds, and planting trees and flowers.

During last year's fall citywide cleanup, more than 2,500 volunteers removed 855 tons of trash, officials said.
