About Keep Arizona Beautiful

Our Mission

Keep Arizona Beautiful empowers citizens across Arizona to care for their environment through litter prevention, recycling and beautification.

Since 1984, Keep Arizona Beautiful has been providing resources and support to help communities organize and implement local initiatives to keep our state clean and beautiful, including litter abatement efforts, recycling programs, illegal dumping prevention, and community beautification projects.

We believe everyone has a right to live in a clean and beautiful community, and each of us shares the responsibility to contribute to that vision.

To achieve that vision, we provide guidance for communities who are just getting organized, event promotion, on-the-ground supplies for clean ups, and “best practices” educational opportunities. Additionally, we are an information clearinghouse and a publicity outlet for any community in Arizona that wants to act together to keep their part of the state beautiful.

What We Do: Outreach & Education

Our statewide outreach is done through our Rural Environmental Outreach Partnership–a collaborative effort of Keep Arizona Beautiful and the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality’s Recycling and Brownfields programs. This outreach includes Environmental Resource Roadshows, Rural Environmental Action Planning Workshops, and Regional Waste, Recycling and Blight Management Forums. As a team, we provide these outreach programs across the state to give communities the tools they need to tackle local environmental challenges.

Environment Resource Roadshow (ERRs)

90-minute presentations that provide an overview of resources available to help communities address local litter, recycling, and blight issues.

Rural Environment Action Planning (REAP) Workshops

REAP workshops bring stakeholders together for in-depth, facilitated, community-based planning workshops to create and implement sustainable solutions to intractable local environmental issues, such as eliminating illegal dumping, creating sustainable recycling solutions, and combatting blight.
