Great American Cleanup

With spring here and summer soon to follow, there couldn’t be a better time to get outside and start cleaning up around your home and favorite public spaces. Keeping your home, lawn, park, and local recreation areas clean is an important part of beautifying your community for everyone’s enjoyment.

Great American Cleanup, organized by Keep America Beautiful, is the nation’s largest community improvement program. From March 1 through May 31, an estimated 3 million volunteers will help beautify parks and recreation areas, clean seashores and waterways, help with recycling collection, pick up litter, plant trees and flowers, conduct educational programs, and much more.

In 2010, volunteers in all 50 states donated more than 5.7 million hours to improve more than 33,000 communities during more than 30,000 events. To find out more about volunteering and find an event near you, visit
