The City of Virginia Beach Public Works Department, in collaboration with the Parks and Recreation and Police departments, is enlisting the help of volunteers for Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup (GAC). Volunteers are needed Saturday, May 2, from 8:30 a.m. to noon, at the 17th Street Corridor near the oceanfront.

GAC is the country’s largest annual cleanup, beautification and community improvement program, drawing millions of volunteers in over 15,000 communities each year. Virginia Beach will be focusing on picking up trash in the wooded lot between 17th Street and 19th Street, next to North Birdneck Road. 

The City will be working with the Virginia Beach Clean Community Commission, Keeping Virginia Beach Beautiful,, Keep Virginia Beautiful, and Keep America Beautiful to continue building an even cleaner, more sustainable city. For more information about this event, or to register to volunteer, contact John Mayer with the Public Works Waste Management Recycling Bureau at or call  (757) 385-3855.
