Cleanups and Litter Reduction

Keep Roswell Beautiful hosts several cleanup events throughout the year. The program also assists individuals and organizations in the community complete their own cleanups. If you would like to request supplies, please complete the Cleanup Supplies Request Form. For any questions or comments, contact Staff Liaison Kathy Lay at 575-500-0395. Free cleaning supplies available to civic organizations looking to clean up.

The KRB litter prevention campaign is targeting the most littered item in the world, in the US, and in New Mexico - cigarette butts. They are not just wood (paper) and leaves (tobacco). The filter is plastic and filled with thousands of chemicals, hundreds of which are toxic. They are harmful and can kill wildlife and fish. If animals could talk, they would tell us #NoButts4Me. If you are a smoker, keep a small jar under your car seat to dispose of cigarette butts. Take it one step farther by joining the effort to recycle cigarette butts. Put the collected cigarette butts in a zip bag, toss it in a mailer, and use the free shipping label from Terracycle to send them to be recycled.

If animals could talk, they would say no butts for me. Dispose of cigarette butts properly.

Fall Cleanup

Keep Roswell Beautiful would like to Keep Roswell Beautiful would like to thank the Hispano Chamber, Xcel Energy, El Toro Bravo, McDonalds, and the New Mexico Tourism Dept "Clean and Beautiful" grant program for making the Fall Cleanup event such a success! There were 48 volunteers (special thanks to Hispano Chamber volunteers, Pioneer Bank volunteers, the volunteers from St. Peter's & St. John's Catholic Churches, Moon Rock Outfitters, & Stellar Coffee volunteers, and others) who worked a total of 102.5 hours cleaning at the various locations. The roll-off dumpster was placed right before the event started and picked up that same afternoon, then taken to the landfill where it was weighed. This amazing group of volunteers picked up 860 lbs of trash! So impressive! KRB calls that a HUGE success!
