Participate in Keeping BernCo Beautiful

— First cleanup weekend is this Saturday, April 7 —

 

Bernalillo County – The community is invited to help keep Bernalillo County beautiful by being a part of the Great American Cleanup happening most weekends in April, and May.

Everyone can participate — individuals, families, neighborhood associations, sports teams, church groups, schools, garden clubs, civic leagues, military groups, business leaders, and anyone else interested in a beautiful community – and can adopt a location in the community to do a cleanup.

This is a great way for students to earn community service hours.

Participants can register online now at gac@bernco.gov and then pick the location closest to them to dispose of the collected litter between 8 a.m. – noon:

April 7 – Mountain View Community Center, 201 Prosperity Ave. SE, 87105

April 14 – Raymond G. Sanchez Community Center, 9800 Fourth St. NW, 87114

April 14 – Stanford Public Health Clinic, 111 Stanford Dr. SE, 87106

April 21 – Paradise Christian/New Song Worship, 6013 Paradise Blvd. NW, 87114

May 5 – Bernalillo County Fire Station 46, 25 Frost Road Sandia Park, NM 87047

Registrants can pick up supplies at 111 Union Square St. SE, 2nd floor, Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Supplies include trash bags, t-shirts, and goodie bags (while supplies last).

Residents can take the Neighborhood Challenge and organize a cleanup event in their very own neighborhood! Send “before” and “after” photos with a short description of the event to GAC@bernco.gov to be shared with the community and receive the popular BernCo Bernie goodie bag.

Participants are encouraged to use #cleanYOURblock, #DoBeautifulThings and #keepNMtrue hashtags on their own social media posts.

For more information, call (505) 314-0422 or email gac@bernco.gov.
