About Make Austin Clean

Make Austin Clean, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was founded to mobilize people to show up, pick up and clean Austin. If everyone cleaned the trash and litter from the street where they live, just once a week, we’d see a greener and much cleaner Austin in no time. We know this can work, but the city of Austin and Make Austin Clean need your help. To achieve a clean, green Austin, it will take the support of Austin residents and businesses alike to make this a reality. You can help keep your neighborhood clean and show up for the larger community cleanup projects when scheduled.
