Despite the rain, the 2021 Great American Cleanup took place on Saturday, April 24th from 8 AM – Noon. Keep Peoria Beautiful provided supplies to neighborhood and community groups participating in the cleanup activities and provided volunteers to PCAPS to clean up litter in the wooded area around the animal shelter.

Dream Center Peoria and City staff volunteered at cleanup events across the city to help fight blight and clear the city of litter. Twenty dumpsters were provided to neighborhood groups across the city to dispose of bulky items, litter, debris, and yard waste.

While it is important to maintain clean and healthy neighborhoods all year long, this nationwide cleanup effort is an opportunity to show appreciation for your neighborhood and gives us all more reasons to appreciate Peoria.

Please contact Neighborhood Enhancement Coordinator Kaylee Drea kdrea@peoriagov.org or at 309-494-8624 with any questions about the Great American Cleanup.
