Beautify Fresno is a city-wide effort to clean our neighborhoods, streets, and highways by partnering with local organizations, non-profits, churches and service organizations, and individuals in the community.
The City of Fresno is proud to join the affiliate network of Keep America Beautiful (KAB), the nation’s iconic nonprofit community improvement organization.
As a KAB affiliate operating under the name Beautify Fresno, the City of Fresno joins more than 600 Keep America Beautiful affiliates, including 27 state affiliates, and a number of international affiliates.
The Keep America Beautiful Network mobilizes more than 3.5 million volunteers each year to take positive action on community improvement concerns. As a result, litter is being reduced; solid waste is being managed responsibly; citizens are improving vacant lots, highways, and other public spaces; trees and flowers are being planted; and recycling and composting efforts are expanding.
As a Keep America Beautiful affiliate, Beautify Fresno has access to a wealth of resources and knowledge, along with potential grant funding. The goal is to host year-round cleanup events throughout Fresno and provide training – and trash bags – to residents who organize their own neighborhood cleanups through a new Adopt-A-Block program.
Removing litter from streets, highways, neighborhoods, parks, and other public spaces in collaboration with the community while raising awareness about the impact of litter.

Cultivating waste reduction practices within the citizenry in order to divert waste from landfills and transition to a zero waste culture.
