SANTA FE – Apr. 22, 2021 – Last Saturday’s Great American Cleanup, sponsored by Keep Santa Fe Beautiful and the City’s Environmental Services and Parks Divisions, resulted in a total of 6.715 tons of trash picked up from areas around the city. Approximately 300 hundred volunteers, including those from 10 neighborhood associations, two businesses, two youth groups and one elementary school, joined forces to pick up litter along roadways, open spaces, trails, arroyos and parks on the north and south sides of Sana Fe. The event was supported by eight KSFB Board members and 12 city staff members who helped hand out supplies and collect trash from cleanup participants. Mayor Alan Webber and City Council members also participated in the cleanup on the morning of the event.

“I would like to thank everyone who came out to support our annual Spring cleanup – volunteers, elected officials, board members, and staff,” said Carol Branch, Executive Director of Keep Santa Fe Beautiful. “It has been a challenging year, and it was exciting to get back to work keeping our city clean, green and beautiful in COVID-safe way. With your help, we’re making a visible difference in the City Different!”

The Great American Cleanup is one of two city-wide litter cleanups sponsored by Keep Santa Fe Beautiful. The Toss No Mas Fall Cleanup will be held on Saturday, Sep. 17th, 2021. KSFB also supports volunteers wishing to hold their own cleanups throughout the year by providing bags and gloves. Residents interested in organizing a volunteer-led litter cleanup should register online.
