Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful (KGMB) has initiated BIG Clean MKE, a year-round program. This is an effort to continuously maintain cleaner, healthier neighborhoods and reduce litter.
What is different?
BIG Clean MKE is a year-round program. Cleanup supplies will be available all year. To promote sustainability, green buckets will be provided for litter pickup and a limited number of garbage bags will be supplied for emptying the buckets. If you are a neighborhood group that does regular cleanups, green buckets will be given to you and will not have to be returned. Smaller groups and groups not doing reoccurring cleanups will be asked to return the buckets upon completion of their cleanup.
What is the same?
KGMB will continue to loan supplies for your cleanup (rakes, brooms, shovels, etc.) March 1st – October 31st of each year. Registration forms available online. Please click here.
Site Coordinator Information:
A site coordinator is anyone who wants to organize a cleanup. As a site coordinator registered with KGMB you can receive supplies for your cleanup event. For specific information on how to lead a community cleanup, please click here. Please attend an informational meeting. Meetings are short and geared towards providing information on what is new and how to organize a successful cleanup.
