Together — We're Keeping Denver Clean & Beautiful!

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.

Community Beautification Projects

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.

Supplies provided by KDB:

  • Loaner tools (rakes, brooms and shovels)
  • Loaner supplies (safety vests and gloves)
  • Trash bags
  • Trash bag pickup following your cleanup
  • Safety information
  • Project guidelines

Please Note: Tools, supplies and trash pickups may not be available for all cleanups. In addition to the above, KDB can often help with developing flyers and other outreach support.
