Cowtown Great American Cleanup


Join Keep Fort Worth Beautiful and thousands of volunteers across the city for the 34th annual Cowtown Great American Cleanup, our largest annual litter cleanup and beautification event. Every year, organizations, businesses and individuals pick up litter from parks, streets, creeks and other public areas. In 2018, these hard-working volunteers removed over 140,000 pounds of trash from their communities.
