It’s Great American Cleanup Season here in Mississippi! (See Gov. Phil Bryant’s proclamation.) Volunteers across the state are picking up litter, planting trees and shrubs and improving their communities.
The Great American Cleanup is the country’s largest community improvement program that kicks off in more than 20,000 communities each spring. This national program engages 2 million volunteers who take action in their communities to create positive change and lasting impact.
Here’s a few ways to get involved in this year’s Great American Cleanup:
- Join an event near you. Find a Keep Mississippi Beautiful affiliate in your area or see what we have planned on our calendar.

- Share how you’re cleaning and greening on social media. Use the #GAC2016 and #CleanGreenMS hashtags. Be sure to check out our Great American Cleanup Social Media Hub to see what Mississippians are up to!
