Keep Martin Beautiful: Join The Great(est) American Cleanup

Posted on April 7, 2024

Mark your calendars from now through June 20 for the 2024 Great American Cleanup!

Spearheaded nationally by Keep America Beautiful, the Great American Cleanup® unifies and beautifies communities across the country in a grassroots spring-cleaning movement. Our local Great American Cleanup - Green Up & Clean Up offers many opportunities to organize groups and participate in activities to make tangible improvements in Martin County.

Martin County is a beautiful place, but it takes real effort by concerned citizens to keep it that way. You can help make 2024 the Great(est) American Cleanup! From community cleanups, to invasive plant removals, planting and gardening, and educational activities – we can help you coordinate an event of your own, spread the word, and provide cleanup supplies.

Or you can join a local event that’s already scheduled, like the Live.Love.Local Hobe Sound cleanup on April 20 or Downtown Stuart’s Sweeping the Streets cleanup on the same day or House of Hope’s Clear the Field, Grow the Future: Farm Weeding event on May 31.

During last year’s Great American cleanup, more than 300 volunteers removed about 2,500 pounds of debris from more than 30 miles of Martin County roadways, beaches, and parks. Those dedicated volunteers spent over 700 hours collecting enough debris to fill nearly 200 trash bags with the value of their time estimated at $18,000. Of course, the positive impact on our environment and our community was priceless!

As a reminder, Keep Martin Beautiful is hosting the Environmental Stewardship Awards on May 1 to honor the individuals, families, businesses and organizations that have shown their love for the environment over the past two years in creative and measurable ways. We look forward to sharing more information about them with you in our next column.
