Great Tyler Cleanup

Each year, as part of the Don't Mess with Texas Trash-Off and the Great American Cleanup, Keep Tyler Beautiful hosts the Great Tyler Cleanup! Volunteers from all across the community head out to their neighborhoods and local parks to help rid our city of litter. In 2019, 400 volunteers took part in this city-wide event and cleaned up 5,280 pounds of trash!

In 2020, our Great Tyler Cleanup will take place on April 4 at Southside Park. Check back in February for sponsorship opportunities and registration information!

Park Service Day

Park Service Day Banner

Each September, Keep Tyler Beautiful hosts a Park Service Day event as a way for our community to give back and help beautify our neighborhood parks. Hundreds of volunteers take on projects such as painting park bathrooms and railings, cleaning litter, cleaning flower beds, laying new mulch on playgrounds and more. These projects are made possible thanks to our community sponsors each year.
