Keep America Beautiful's


Great American Cleanup


is one of the nation's largest annual community improvement programs that harnesses the power of over 4 million volunteers to build vibrant communities. Each year, over 1,200 affiliates and participating organizations engage through programs that deliver positive and lasting impact through events focused on waste reduction, recycling, beautification and community greening. 

We have the best volunteers you can find! In April 2019, our volunteers removed 5,600 pounds of litter 
from roadways, streams, ponds, City Lake, parks, the Greenways and school campuses! Not only that, but students from several High Point schools planted flowers on their campuses courtesy of Keep High Point Beautiful.
