Thank you to all of the volunteers who showed up to clean over the past few days. If you are interested in joining future volunteer clean-up efforts, please check back here for updates.
If you would like to start a cleanup effort in your own neighborhood, check out the tips below for safe cleanup efforts. Just remember that any historic buildings should be left alone as they will need to be cleaned by professional restoration experts.
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.

Stay Tuned!: 2020 Residential Tire Collection Event
The date for the next Residential Tire Collection Event will be posted to the website towards the end of next summer.
In 2019, we collected 875 tires, 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!
