Great American Cleanup

The Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup™ is the nation’s largest annual cleanup and community improvement event, which runs principally from March 1 through June 30, although it can involve year-round activities. The Great American Cleanup™ stimulates community pride by involving residents, businesses, and civic groups at the state and local level in an effort to improve and beautify their local environment. It encourages volunteerism, personal action, and responsibility, and promotes the missions of the Keep America Beautiful organization: litter prevention, beautification, and waste reduction and recycling.

Activities can include litter cleanups, special recycling events, planting red flowers for a “Grow Big Red” garden, increased recycling collections, tree plantings, clothes collections, etc. Please register any event or activity you wish so we can recognize your efforts and community involvement.

Each year over 1,200 Keep America Beautiful affiliates, communities and participating organizations engage volunteers to take action in their communities through programs that deliver positive and lasting impact through events focused on waste reduction, recycling, beautification and community greening
