One Albuquerque Cleanup Month

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

February 25, 2022

Join the City’s Solid Waste Management Department and Keep Albuquerque Beautiful for the 2nd annual One Albuquerque Cleanup Month. After collecting 94,860 pounds (more than 47 tons) of trash in all four quadrants of the City last year thanks to our 732 volunteers, we’re doing it again but we need your help! Gather a group of friends or neighbors and register to clean up your neighborhood, park, or other area that needs it in honor of Earth Month. With your help we can all work together to keep Albuquerque clean and beautiful.

There are four Saturdays in a row of cleanups scheduled all over the City. Each quadrant is assigned its own Saturday for a cleanup day Starting April 9 and running through April 30. Register for one of them or even multiple days! Bonus points for those that register for all four. We will provide each group that registers with garbage bags and gloves for their cleanup. If you need help finding an area to clean up, we can help you with that! We’ll be providing maps of nearby parks and trails at the central drop-off location each Saturday. The central drop-off locations will also be where each group will need to bring their trash so Solid Waste can collect and dispose of it.
