Volunteers Needed for the Great American Cleanup


The community is invited to help keep Bernalillo County beautiful by being a part of the Great American Cleanup, Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Keep America Beautiful and Bernalillo County are hosting the Great American Cleanup, the country’s largest community improvement program that kicks off in more than 20,000 communities each spring. This national program engages more than 5 million volunteers and participants who take action in their communities every year to create positive change and lasting impact.

The county is looking for individuals, families, neighborhood associations, sports teams, church groups, military groups, business leaders or anyone else interested in a beautiful community, to adopt a location in their respective areas to do a cleanup.

Teams can register at www.bernco.gov/gac. Trash bags will be supplied to all registrants, plus t-shirts and goodie bags (whiles supplies last).

Participants can also be a part of the “Clean Your Block Party” neighborhood challenge. Groups can organize a cleanup event in their own neighborhood and send “before” and “after” photos and a short description of the event to gac@bernco.gov to be shared with the community and receive a BernCo Bernie goodie bag.

Groups should go to the location closest to them to pick up supplies and dispose of their litter.
