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.

Megan has spent the last 17 years working in either environmental compliance or non-profit development. She joined Keep Arizona Beautiful in March 2015 as the Environmental Research Specialist and is excited to support the Arizona green community.
“I am so pleased to be working towards a cleaner, more beautiful Arizona.”
The Rural Environmental Outreach Partnership is a joint effort of Keep Arizona Beautiful, the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality’s Recycling and Brownfields programs, and Arizona Department of Transportation’s Adopt a Highway Volunteer Program. As a team, we provide outreach programs across the state that give communities the tools they need to tackle local environmental challenges.
The ERR program provides communities with an overview of the resources available to help them address a variety of local environmental issues: litter clean ups, e-waste recycling and household hazardous waste events, illegal dumping abatement, and brownfields assessment and abatement.
The REAP program brings 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.
