Great American Clean Up – Each year, Keep America Beautiful Affiliates across the nation come together to clean up our neighborhoods, parks, trails, and waterways. Here in Rome, we celebrate the arrival of spring with clean up and beautification initiatives from April 1 – May 31, with special events throughout this time period. Groups hosting their own events are strongly encouraged to REGISTER their activities with Rome Clean and Green, and then REPORT their results so that we can measure the volunteer impact. We also invite you to be a part of one of our very special Great American Clean Up activities!
