Our mission is to enhance the visual appearance of Denver by addressing problems of graffiti and litter through volunteer projects and educational programs.
Keep Denver Beautiful focuses on supporting residents and businesses in maintaining an attractive safe urban environment. As a program of Solid Waste Management,we emphasize the elimination of trash, litter, junk and graffiti from our city’s neighborhoods and public right-of-ways. Keep Denver Beautiful coordinates the efforts of neighborhood residents, volunteer groups and Solid Waste Management. From major projects such as the Great American Cleanup to furnishing a few trash bags for your own informal alley cleanups, Keep Denver Beautiful strives to give the support you want. Explore Volunteer Opportunities for information how you or your group can get involved.
Additionally, our sister program, Denver Partners Against Graffiti, provides graffiti abatement services for many public and private properties.

Was a GREAT success thanks to the nearly 200 volunteers that joined Keep Denver Beautiful in sprucing up East Colfax Avenue!
Volunteers of all ages volunteered their time to pick up hundreds of litter butts and other little litter along the East Colfax Avenue the "Gateway to the Rockies". Graffiti vandalism was painted out from numerous properties and hundreds of stickers were removed from signs and poles on East Colfax Avenue from Grant to Yosemite Streets.
The 5th Annual Graffiti "Brush Off" & litter Cleanup took place on SATURDAY, JULY 26, 2014 - Keep Denver Beautiful thanks the individuals, groups & families that came out to support this annual event!
