The Great American Cleanup

Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup is the nation’s largest community improvement program, which takes place annually in an estimated 20,000 communities nationwide. Cleanup events typically take place all across Hampton Roads from March to June, and we invite everyone—individuals, families, school groups, clubs and civic organizations—to Team Up 2 Clean Up with us and get in on the fun.

Save the date! The 2022 Great American Cleanup will be held in Hampton Roads on March 25-26, 2022.

The Great American Cleanup is an opportunity to transform your neighborhood and community into beautiful, healthy spaces. Beautiful places are environmentally healthy, socially connected and economically sound. They’re better places to raise families, start a business or go to school.

Our program Team Up 2 Clean Up is always available, but during this annual Great American Cleanup event, we encourage you to be a part of the transformation that takes place all across Hampton Roads!

The next Great American Cleanup event for Hampton Roads is scheduled for March 25-26, 2022.

Great American Cleanup volunteers make a BIG impact.

Each year about 1,000 volunteers team up to clean up Hampton Roads for the regional two-day event. Volunteers from military commands, local businesses and non-profits join forces with private citizens across Hampton Roads to rid the land and water of litter, tend community gardens and improve public parks. Since 2019, volunteers have cleared more than 47 tons of litter from our environment. Be part of our team and help us cleanup Hampton Roads!
