About The Great American Cleanup

What is the Great American Cleanup?

The Great American Cleanup (GAC) is an annual nationwide cleanup program initiated by Keep America Beautiful (KAB). Keep the Midlands Beautiful (KMB), a KAB affiliate, promotes the Great American Cleanup which begins March 20 and ends June 20, 2021. Through this program, KMB is able to provide you with the materials and resources you need to make an immediate, visual change in your community.

How Can KMB Help With Your Cleanup?

Keep the Midlands Beautiful is happy to provide cleanup supplies (including gloves, vests, litter grabbers, and trash bags) to groups of two or more for a one-time cleanup during the GAC program period free of charge. 


Free supplies are also available during the entire calendar year for other volunteer-initiated one-time cleanups.


Because the cleanups are coordinated by volunteers, volunteers are responsible for arranging trash bag removal after their cleanup is complete. 

  • Please click here for information about Richland County Solid Waste Management or click here for information about Lexington County Solid Waste Management if you are unsure of where to take your full bags.
