The Parks & Recreation Department’s Keep Las Cruces Beautiful and the New Mexico Clean and Beautiful programs will host this year’s Great American Cleanup from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 14.
Hundreds of volunteers will assist with a city-wide cleanup and collect litter at parks, schools, streets and business properties during the Great American Cleanup campaign. Volunteers will then be treated to a free lunch hosted by Walmart. The lunch will be held from noon to 1 p.m. at Walmart, 571 Walton Blvd.
Last year, 800 volunteers from 60 local groups and organizations collected more than 15 tons of litter during the annual event.
