Great American Cleanup


is the nation's largest annual community improvement program that harnesses the power of over 4 million volunteers to build vibrant communities. Each year, over 1,200 affiliates and participating organizations engage through programs that deliver positive and lasting impact through events focused on waste reduction, recycling, beautification and community greening. 

In 2016, over 1,100 volunteers helped to keep High Point beautiful by cleaning up over 19,000 pounds of trash and recycling! These volunteers are vital in our effort to better the community through environmental protection.
