Keep Las Cruces Beautiful

Keep Las Cruces Beautiful (KLCB) focuses on the 3 E's: Education, Eradication and Enforcement. Our program is dedicated to keeping our city beautiful through litter and weed control, graffiti eradication and prevention activities, community recycling efforts, and neighborhood and community wide beautification projects. Community involvement is a key component of our program empowering the citizens of Las Cruces to take action in their neighborhoods.

KLCB has been in existence since 1991 and is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful and New Mexico Clean and Beautiful. It is currently under the Parks & Recreation Department for the City of Las Cruces. Find out more below:



  • Toss No Mas

    We will be hosting the 23rd annual Toss No Mas campaign on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017. Hundreds of volunteers will collect litter at parks, schools, streets and business properties from 8 a.m. to 12 noon during the Toss No Mas campaign. Volunteers will then be treated to a free lunch sponsored by local businesses. The lunch will be held from noon to 2 p.m. at Young Park.

    Last year, 1100 volunteers that included 65 local groups and organizations collected more than 15 tons of litter during the annual event, previously known as Trek for Trash.

    Individual volunteers, groups and civic organizations are encouraged to register before Oct. 9 for this year’s Toss No Mas campaign which is a great opportunity to show pride in Las Cruces. The Toss No Mas campaign is organized locally by Keep Las Cruces Beautiful, a program of the City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department. Register to Volunteer!

  • Reuse & Recycle Show 2017
  • Great American Cleanup - coming 2018!
    You are encouraged to take part in this exciting and innovative program by "adopting" a portion of your neighborhood. From business districts to your own block, beautification and maintenance of your own "Spot" can only benefit your community. Find out more!

Volunteer and join good people doing great things. Beautify our neighborhoods, parks and schools by picking up litter, painting over graffiti, painting murals or planting trees and shrubs.

Thank you to volunteers of all ages and all groups that lent a helping hand to our annual Toss No Mas! Stay tuned for next year's event!
