Great American Cleanup 2020

The Keep America Beautiful® Great American Cleanup® has been rescheduled for June 1 – Oct. 18 in communities throughout the country.


Keep America Beautiful is pleased to announce the Great American Cleanup 2020 has been rescheduled for June 1 – Oct. 18. As the country begins to open up and Americans are getting back to spending time outdoors, 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, engaged more than 550,000 volunteers and participants in 2019 to create positive change and lasting impact in their local communities.

Local affiliates and partnering organizations, volunteers and corporate sponsors play a key role in the success of the Great American Cleanup.

The Great American Cleanup offers structured service projects to measure changes in littering behavior and heighten awareness about the benefits of caring for the environment through organized volunteer events, employee engagement opportunities, and experiential education in more than 15,000 communities across America. We encourage volunteers to participate in a local cleanup – or conduct your own.
