One Albuquerque Cleanup Month

Celebrate Earth Day and Keep Burque Clean by organizing a cleanup day in your neighborhood.

April 5, 2021

With Earth Day just around the corner, you and your fellow Burqueños can create a better future today by rolling up your sleeves—literally and figuratively! Every action, no matter how small, can make a world of a difference and your participation in the One Albuquerque Cleanup Month can make a huge difference here at home!

This year’s Earth Day event is bigger than ever – four weekends of cleanups scheduled all over the City. Each quadrant is assigned its own Saturday for a cleanup day starting on April 24 and running through May 15, to Keep Burque Clean!
