COMMUNITY BEAUTIFICATION PROJECTS

You can get outdoors, get a little dirty, and get that feeling of a job well done.

There are plenty of opportunities to help keep Denver beautiful. Join a cleanup or plan your own! This is a great way for groups and individuals to make a difference on an occasional or one time basis. To find out about planned projects already in the works, contact Keep Denver Beautiful, 720-913-1311 or dpag@denvergov.org.  Allow 2 to 3 weeks when planning your own project.

Keep Denver Beautiful provides safety information and cleanup supplies and can arrange to remove the collected trash following the cleanup. Minimum age is 5 or 6 with adult supervision, 16 without. Volunteers should plan on 2 to 4 hours per event.

Educational Value: Cleanups offer participants the chance to explore details of the urban environment that often go unnoticed.

Keep Denver Beautiful provides the following support for your community cleanups:
  • Loaner tools (rakes, brooms and shovels)
  • Loaner supplies (safety vests and gloves)
  • Trash bags
  • Trash bag pickup following your cleanup
  • Safety information
  • Project guidelines

 

 

Thank you to all Denver residents that brought automobile tires to our free collection event. Be on the lookout for the next free tire collection event in the fall of 2019

In 2018, we collected 1120 tires weighing 26,120 pounds, that’s 13 tons!
