Keep Virginia Beautiful

Prevent Litter.

    Improve Recycling.

        Beautify Communities.

Latest News The COVID-19 health crisis continues to affect our way of doing just about everything, but we are resilient and creative and know our efforts to Keep Virginia Beautiful are as important as ever. The amount of litter on Virginia's walkways and roadways has dramatically increased due to reduced cleanup events and millions of single use masks and gloves flooding our environment. Cleanups during this time are encouraged and appreciated, however, please keep your distance from others, wear a mask and wash your hands.

Our Programs Keep Virginia Beautiful programs impact communities of all sizes and in many ways.
From grants to chances to win much needed clean up equipment.


Keep Virginia Beautiful is so thankful for the many volunteers and partnerships that allow us to develop and deliver programs and events that benefit Virginia’s environment.
