The 20th anniversary of Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup will kick off in Delaware with Keep Delaware Beautiful this June.

The Great American Cleanup, which takes place annually in an estimated 20,000 communities nationwide, engages more than 5 million volunteers and participants, on average, every year to create a positive impact. Keep Delaware Beautiful, along with Keep America Beautiful’s more than 600 community-based affiliates and partnering organizations, plan volunteer events and education programs that help to renew parks, trails and recreation areas, clean shorelines and waterways, remove litter and debris and plant trees, flowers and a community garden.

Visit and register for any date between June 1-30. Keep Delaware Beautiful will provide Great American Cleanup logos to promote the event, a certificate from Keep America Beautiful and Keep Delaware Beautiful, as well as promotion of the event on Keep Delaware Beautiful’s website and social media. Groups are asked to report their cleanup results after the cleanup using an online form.

The 2018 Great American Cleanup social theme — #cleanYOURblock — is a call-to-action to engage more volunteers and participants in public space cleanup, beautification and recycling events conducted by Keep America Beautiful affiliates nationwide.
