Buffalo has been participating in the Great American Cleanup program every year since it started in 1999.

The Great American Cleanup® is a program that unifies and beautifies communities across the country in a grassroots spring-cleaning movement.  This year celebrating its 23rd year, the most recent Great American Cleanup created opportunities for millions of volunteers with impressive results – picking up millions of pounds of litter, cleaning over 100,000 acres of public spaces, and tens of thousands of miles of roadways and shorelines.

The Great American Cleanup is an opportunity for community-minded individuals to take greater responsibility for their local environment by conducting grassroots service projects that engage volunteers, local businesses, and civic leaders. A successful Great American Cleanup project fulfills the needs of the local community; and challenges local community and business leaders, as well as other key stakeholders, to gain knowledge about a community’s needs and then to carefully select and execute appropriate projects.
