The 2018 Great American Cleanup

It’s time for the Great American Cleanup! Throughout the months of March, April and May, Keep America Beautiful, in partnership with Keep the Midlands Beautiful, is hosting the national Great American Cleanup campaign across the Midlands. The Great American Cleanup, the nation's largest community improvement program, takes place every year from March 1 through May 31, and involves more than 3 million volunteers and participants comprising more than 20,000 communities across the nation.

The cleanup program is designed and tailored to the unique needs of local neighborhoods and communities throughout the state and nation. Activities will include beautifying parks and recreation areas, cleaning waterways, holding recycling collections, picking up litter, planting trees and flowers, and conducting educational programs and litter-free events. Keep the Midlands Beautiful will loan out gloves, vests, bags and grabbers for the cleanup efforts. Campaign organizers ask that Midlands area residents and S.C. citizens, in general, display their Palmetto Pride by volunteering for this important cause. Keep the Midlands Beautiful can help group organizers pick geographic areas of need if necessary.
