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.
