“Mask Up to Clean Up”, the COVID-safe variation of the Keep Las Cruces Beautiful (KLCB) “Team Up to Clean Up” district events, will be held in City Council District 2 from 8 a.m. – noon on Saturday, December 19. With COVID-19 safety guidelines still in place, community members can do clean-ups in neighborhoods or litter-prone areas of the city with immediate family or in groups of five or fewer or individually.

KLCB has arranged for two roll-off containers, provided by Las Cruces Utilities Solid Waste, to be available during the event through Sunday, December 20 for use by community members to dispose of trash and large waste. The containers will be located at Frenger Park, 800 Parkview Dr. and at Gomez Park, 2283 S. Espina St.

KLCB staff will have a supply station at the Frenger Park location during the event with trash bags, gloves, and trash pick-up tools. Participants should wear masks, practice social distancing, and wash hands regularly or use hand sanitizer.

“Team Up to Clean Up!” is a beautification program initiated in 2019 to help reverse the process of neighborhood deterioration and enhance the quality of life in the city. “Mask Up to Clean Up!” is a call to enlist the community, during this time of COVID, to voluntarily pitch in to do clean-ups safely where they live that create a cleaner, safer, and healthier environment.

All events are from 8 a.m. to noon. Roll-off containers will be available during each event. Interested participants can find their district at
