Citywide Cleanups and Call for Volunteers
Individual volunteers, groups, and civic organizations are invited to register for Cleanup Events throughout the year.
Keep Las Cruces Beautiful, the City of Las Cruces Parks and Recreation Department, and New Mexico Clean and Beautiful programs will host annual Citywide Cleanups, which are a great opportunity to beautify Las Cruces.
Hundreds of volunteers participate each year to collect litter at parks, schools, streets, and business properties during the Citywide Cleanup campaign.
In past years, more than 1,000 volunteers from local groups and organizations have collected more than 16 tons of litter during the annual event. The Citywide Cleanups are organized locally by KLCB and is a statewide initiative in partnership with New Mexico True.
All volunteers are encouraged to call 575/528-4506, or email KLCB@lascruces.gov for information to sign up.
Adopt a Spot
You are encouraged to take part in this exciting and innovative program by adopting a portion of your neighborhood. From business districts to your own block, beautification and maintenance of your own spot can only benefit your community. Check out program information and sign up.
