Ways to Volunteer to Cleanup
Lead or participate in a cleanup
Know of a neighborhood in need of a cleanup? Get out on your own or energize friends, family, colleagues or neighbors to join you. Then register your cleanup site online. You can choose any date in April or May that works for you. KRB will provide you with free trash bags, a GAC t-shirt and reusable tote bag. We have litter grabbers available for sale or loan. Scout badges are available for a small donation.
You may also choose to participate in someone else’s cleanup – indicate your interest on your registration and we can help team you up with a cleanup crew. If you and your team need help selecting a cleanup site, let us know.
Join in a Community Cleanup Event
You and your crew can take part in a larger cleanup event scheduled in your area. It’s a great opportunity to meet other cleanup teams in your community, share stories, and enjoy refreshments before or after heading out to your chosen site. When you register online, indicate your intention to join a Community Cleanup Event. Cleanup supplies will be distributed at these events.

Engage in community service and earn money for your school! With a School Bag-A-Thon, students collect pledges from family and friends before getting out to participate in the Great American Cleanup. The funds raised go back to support the school. The Bag-A-Thon is an opportunity to engage students in service-learning that raises awareness about the environment and the importance of civic engagement.
If you would like to learn more about how your school can participate in a Bag-A-Thon event, please download the information below:
