AUSTIN, TX (March 20, 2023) – Austin is a place everyone loves. Our beautiful lakes, creeks, and green spaces make it a great place to call home. But Austin has a litter problem. For the 38th year in a row, volunteers across the city will gather in April to restore Austin’s beauty and clean up litter across the city. On Saturday, April 15th, more than 1,200 volunteers are expected to participate in the organization’s largest citywide day of service, Keep Austin Beautiful Day, presented by Samsung Austin Semiconductor. In just two hours that morning, dedicated neighbors, families, and friends will beautify their communities by removing litter from green spaces and waterways. This collective effort exemplifies Austinites’ spirit of giving back.
Projects are confirmed at more than 100 locations in all 10 City Council Districts across the Greater Austin Area and include on-the-water cleanups on kayaks and canoes, invasive species removals, and more. Keep Austin Beautiful Day aims to inspire the preservation of Austin’s shared outdoor spaces through community engagement and environmental stewardship. Noting that hundreds of volunteers are already registered for the day of service, Keep Austin Beautiful’s Executive Director, Rodney Ahart, says, “Each year we are amazed by the response from the Austin community to volunteer. This year we hope to make our largest impact yet with the help of residents in communities all over Austin. Just a few hours can make a huge difference.” Volunteer opportunities are still available.
