Each April, Keep Austin Beautiful hosts Clean Sweep, a county-wide service day spanning 130+ sites in 31 zip codes throughout Austin and Travis County. As Clean Sweep has grown over the years we have noted that is has become more than just a cleanup day. Volunteers are planting gardens, restoring riparian habitats, removing graffiti, and more. To recognize all the work volunteers are doing on this day we have decided to formally rename Clean Sweep to Keep Austin Beautiful Day.
We hope you will join us on Saturday, April 14th for the newly launched day of community service for the first time as Keep Austin Beautiful Day.
In previous years, the cleanup and project day has resulted in over 26 tons of trash removed by 4,000 plus volunteers who contribute 8,700 combined service hours. Keeping with tradition, the network of projects will followed by a not-to-be-missed volunteer party featuring free t-shirts, lunch, live music, children’s environmental activities, a unique object contest, door prizes, and more!
