Great American Cleanup 2022

The Keep America Beautiful® Great American Cleanup® has been scheduled for March 21 – June 22 in communities throughout the country.


Keep America Beautiful is celebrating the Great American Cleanup’s 24th year in 2022, between March 21 to June 22. As the country continues to deal with the pandemic, it is as important as ever to help end litter across our great nation. This means that we should all make sure that waste (including PPE) gets placed in the trash and we all recycle based on local capabilities. 

Regarding litter collection, Great American Cleanup event organizers have been provided clear guidance to ensure that volunteer health is our first priority. All cleanups should adhere to guidelines from federal, state, and local public health officials so timely and accurate information can guide safe and appropriate activities in each location. 

The Great American Cleanup®, the nation’s largest community improvement program, creates positive change and lasting impact in local communities.
