Montgomery County Solid Waste District, through its Keep Montgomery County Beautiful program, invites you to participate in the area’s largest organized volunteer litter cleanup and community improvement program– the Great American Cleanup. This program runs March 1 - May 31 every year.

How Can I Help?
There are several ways to get involved:

If you already have an area in mind to clean (park, road, alley, neighborhood, playground, vacant lot, etc.), we can get you the supplies you need to clean up. 

How We Help…

  • We provide trash bags from our national sponsor Glad®, gloves and possibly free litter disposal at our facilities. 
  • The Community Pride Cleanup Supply Trailer is available on a first come, first serve basis for groups of five or more people.  Get More Information.
  • We can provide assistance in planning your event.  We have announcement posters, event planning tips and possible assistance with picking up the trash bags.  We can help you make your event a success.    
  • We have thank you promotions and special events planned for our litter cleanup groups.
