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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
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.
We collected 875 tires this year weighing over 20,400 pounds!
That is over 10 actual tons of waste tires removed from homes and neighborhoods.
Great job keeping your city beautiful, Denver!
The dates for next year's event will be posted to the website towards the end of next summer. See you then!
If you would like to plan a cleanup, we can provide materials and tools to help! Please complete and return a project registration form to request materials (allow 2 weeks)
After your cleanup, please return any materials or tools loaned out. Please submit a project completion form to finalize the project.
