Great American Cleanup

Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup

The Great American Cleanup® unifies and beautifies communities across the country in a grassroots spring-cleaning movement.  Celebrating its 24th year, the 2020 Great American Cleanup created 15,000 opportunities for millions of volunteers to have remarkable results – picking up millions of pounds of litter, cleaning over 100,000 acres of public spaces, and tens of thousands of miles of roadways and shorelines. 

The Great American Cleanup prompts individuals to take greater responsibility for their local environment by conducting grassroots community service projects that engage volunteers, local businesses, and civic leaders. A successful Great American Cleanup project must fulfill the needs of the local community; that’s why we work with local community and business leaders, as well as other key stakeholders to gain knowledge about the community’s needs and carefully select and execute appropriate projects. - Keep America Beautiful
