Great American Cleanup Citywide Cleanup Set for April 8 2017
Hundreds of volunteers will collect litter at parks, schools, streets and business properties. Volunteers will then be treated to a free lunch hosted by Walmart. The lunch will be held from noon to 1 p.m. at the Walmart on Walton Boulevard in Las Cruces.
Last year, 900 volunteers from 60 local groups and organizations collected more than 13 tons of litter during the annual event, previously known as Trek for Trash.
Individual volunteers, groups and civic organizations are encouraged to register before April 3, 2017 for this year’s Great American Cleanup campaign, which is a great opportunity to show pride in Las Cruces. Register online at the Parks & Recreation “Keep Las Cruces Beautiful” link at www.las-cruces.org or call 575-528-4506.
The Great American Cleanup campaign is organized locally by Keep Las Cruces Beautiful, a program of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation.
