Keep Little Rock Beautiful conducts an annual City Wide Cleanup on the second Saturday in March. This event is in support of the Great American Cleanup.
We reach out to Neighborhood Associations, churches, civic groups, schools, youth organizations, businesses, and individuals to join us in our endeavor.
We invite you to participate in our annual Citywide Clean Up annual events by:
- Organizing a cleanup in your neighborhood or church/business/school location or
- Volunteering to help at a cleanup being organized by a neighborhood or volunteer group.
Keep Little Rock Beautiful provides some resources (trash bags, safety vests, and gloves for volunteers) to registered cleanups.
In 2019, 54 different neighborhoods, churches, scout troops, organizations and businesses led cleanup efforts.
Due to thunderstorms on March 9, the day of the cleanup, most groups rescheduled the day of their participation.
- 777 volunteers devoting 2219 hours. This was a value of $54,787 (according to Keep America Beautiful’s volunteer value rate of $24.69/hour.)
- 969 – Bags of litter/trash
- 26.65 – Tons of litter and bulky waste collected in dumpsters
- 27 – Bags of recycling
- 443 – Blocks cleaned
- 67 – Acres of Parks cleaned and 2 trails
- 55 cleanups were planned, 39 were conducted and reported. The drop was due to the unusually wet spring we had.
