Mark your calendars!  Love Where You Live Day is a monthly event that invites individuals and small groups to beautify the areas around their homes and neighborhoods.  On the second Saturday of each month, show some love for the world right outside your door, whether it’s in your front yard or along your neighborhood street. Pick up some litter, mow your yard, weed a garden bed, or rake some leaves; it’s up to you!


Please note that Keep Austin Beautiful is unable to verify volunteer hours for Love Where You Live Day events.

Cleanup Kit Pickup Registration

Need supplies for your Love Where You Live Day project? We’ve got you covered! The week before each Love Where You Live Day, we offer pickup times to come get your very own cleanup kit. To be notified of our next cleanup kit distribution, sign up for our newsletter.

Each Cleanup Kit includes the following:

  • 5 Litter Grabbers
  • 10 Trash Bags
  • 5 Recycling Bags
  • 10 Pairs of Nitrile Gloves
  • 1 Bottle of Hand Sanitizer
  • 1 Sharps Container
  • 1 First Aid Kit


Is this an in-person event?

This is a fully remote, self-led cleanup event. We’ll be making Austin more beautiful together, while apart.

How long is this event?

We’re asking everyone to volunteer between 9 and 11 A.M., on the second Saturday of the month.

Do you have information on cleaning litter in a COVID environment?

We do! When picking up litter, Keep Austin Beautiful recommends participants do so responsibly and at their comfort level. Your cleanup group can include just the members of your household; our cleanup kit provides supplies for up to 10 people.

When you finish collecting litter, please dispose of any single-use face masks and disposable gloves properly by placing them into your trash bag. Make sure your trash bag is securely tied to protect sanitation workers. After placing the trash bag into your trash cart, immediately wash your hands with soap and water. For more safety information, please read the documents below.

For more information, please visit the Austin Public Health page.

For more information on your waste pickup day, visit Austin Resource Recovery’s My Schedule page, and download their app.

Can I register for multiple kits?

Keep Austin Beautiful will provide ONE free kit per participating household while supplies last.

Where do we discard our trash after the cleanup?

We ask that volunteers take the bags home to their own personal trashcans, or drop off the trash at an approved location.

Can I send someone else to pick-up my kit?

If someone else is picking up your cleanup kit, they will need to provide your first & last name at pickup.

Do we have to return the kits after?

Once you pick up your kit, it belongs to you. You can use these tools to continue doing Love Where You Live cleanups at any time!
