Great American Cleanup

Each year, the Great American Cleanup, an initiative of Keep America Beautiful, inspires thousands of volunteers of all ages across America to take part in efforts to clean up and improve their local communities. Beginning at 10:00 AM, Wellington, with the assistance of staff and volunteers, will take part in the Great American Cleanup by collecting as much trash as possible in selected neighborhoods throughout Wellington. 

If you are interested in participating in this event, contact Ian Williams with the Community Services Department at 561-791-4796 or iwilliams@wellingtonfl.gov.

The Great American Cleanup in the Village of Wellington is coordinated in partnership with Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful, Inc. and the Solid Waste Authority.
