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.
