Keep America Beautiful's Great American Cleanup, the nation's largest annual community improvement program, brings the power of millions of volunteers and participants to create local change. In 2014, the work of more than 4 million volunteers and participants during the Great American Cleanup returned $179 million in measurable benefits across more than 20,000 participating communities. Activities included beautifying parks and recreation areas, cleaning seashores and waterways, handling recycling collections, picking up litter, planting trees and flowers, and conducting educational programs and litter-free events. 

So come volunteer with us at the Great American Cleanup and be part of a national event.
