IS BEAUTIFY FRESNO A CERTIFIED AFFILIATE OF KEEP AMERICA BEAUTIFUL?

We’re in the process of certification with them, but in the meantime, we’re following all their recommendations and procedures. We should have an official ceremony in Spring 2020.

HOW CAN I HELP IN THE EFFORT TO END LITTERING?

The best way to discourage people from littering is by setting a good example:

  1. Don’t throw your litter on the ground;
  2. Pick up litter you see and dispose of it properly;
  3. Don’t throw any litter (including cigarette butts) out of your car;
  4. Check to make sure that any trash cans you own have a tight fitting lid; and
  5. Encourage your friends and neighbors to perform cleanups, even if it is just a once- or twice-a-month walk through your neighborhood.

Calling all joggers and walkers: Take a bag on your jog or walk and pick up litter on your favorite path or route to add to your exercise/weight loss routine.

HOW DO I REPORT ILLEGAL DUMPING, GRAFFITI, BLIGHT, OR OTHER ISSUES?

You can report illegal dumping, trash, graffiti and other issues by reporting them on FresGO.  FresGO is a free, easy to use, real-time app for residents to report issues, track requests, provide comments, and learn about City services.
