We Keep America Beautiful so Americans can do beautiful things

Thriving communities. Safer neighborhoods. New businesses. We don’t clean up communities just to keep America beautiful. We clean up so Americans can do beautiful things.

Our Goals

We believe in the shared American responsibility to build and maintain clean, green, and beautiful spaces. That’s why we take action every day to improve and beautify communities across America.

End Littering

For more than six decades, we’ve served as our country’s steward of litter prevention. Today, we’ve collected over 62 million pounds of litter and debris.

Improve Recycling

We’ve collected 262 million pounds of recyclables which in turn reaped greater environmental, economic, and community benefits.

Beautify Communities

We work with millions of volunteers on beautification and greening programs that impact more than 20,000 communities annually.

Get Involved

Keep America Beautiful envisions a country in which every community is a clean, green, and beautiful place to live. This is why we do what we do, and why we invite committed people like you to participate in our activities and support our programs. We all benefit from living in cleaner, more beautiful places.
