Great American Cleanup Returns To Area April 13

Looking to make Palm Beach County a cleaner, greener, more livable place? Local nonprofit Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful Inc. and the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County encourage you to get involved in the 2013 Great American Cleanup, a national campaign organized by nonprofit Keep America Beautiful.

The Great American Cleanup will take place in Palm Beach County on Saturday, April 13, with additional dates.

In what continues to be the nation’s largest grassroots community improvement program, Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful’s volunteers will clean up litter and debris from public spaces, neighborhoods, roadways, waterways, parks and schools. Additional community improvement activities include tree and landscape plantings, and other beautification projects. Moreover, the Great American Cleanup is a significant opportunity for local organizations to coordinate activities that encourage civic engagement and action.

Visit or call (561) 686-6646 for further details and cleanup sites. Volunteers are encouraged to pre-register by contacting the volunteer coordinator at their chosen location. All supplies will be provided, and commemorative T-shirts will be given to volunteers while supplies last. Community service hours will be given.
