The Great American Cleanup is the country’s largest community improvement program that kicks off in more than 20,000 communities each spring. This national program engages 2 million volunteers who take action in their communities to create positive change and lasting impact.
Here’s what we do:
- We remove litter and debris from roadsides, highways, shorelines and waterways for safer, cleaner communities.
- We plant trees, flowers and gardens to strengthen our community’s green infrastructure.
- We clean and restore nature trails, recreation areas and playgrounds to encourage play and physical activity.
- We recycle cans, plastic bottles, electronics, paper products, tires, clothing, and even junk cars to give garbage another life.
- We rebuild public spaces in communities struck by natural disasters to renew social connections.
- We restore business storefronts and gateways to spur economic impact.
