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. Explore Volunteer Opportunities for information on 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.

The Second Annual Free Residential Tire Collection Event is Here!

When? Saturday, October 12, 2019

Last year we collected 1120 tires from Denver’s residences and neighborhoods weighing over 26,000 pounds. Let’s work together to collect even more this year! This free tire collection event is a great opportunity to get rid of those tires cluttering your property or to finally have a chance to beautify your neighborhood by removing illegally dumped tires. Just bring them to us and we will take care of the rest.

  • Limit of 9 tires per vehicle (state regulation)
  • NO rims, only clean passenger tires will be accepted
  • NO tractor or loader tires will be accepted
  • Tire drop off is free ONLY at the above location and scheduled time.
