2017 Great American Cleanup

Keep America Beautiful, the nation's leading nonprofit that envisions a country in which every community is a clean, green and more beautiful place to live, announces the 2017 Great American Cleanup.

March 20, 2017 to December 31, 2017

Entering its 19th year, Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup is the nation’s largest community improvement program that takes place in more than 20,000 communities each year.

The campaign is led by more than 620 Keep America Beautiful affiliates and hundreds of other partnering organizations, with events formally kicking off around the first day of spring and continuing as weather permits throughout the year. This year’s Great American Cleanup theme — “Clean Your Block Party” — encourages all volunteers and participants to take part in a public space Great American Cleanup event and bring the experience close to home by organizing a cleanup or beautification event on your own block, wherever you may live.
