April 2014

Keep Leesburg Beautiful logoKeep Leesburg Beautiful is a month-long opportunity throughout April for businesses, residents and community groups to come together to make Leesburg a cleaner place for all!

Youth groups, community organizations, churches, businesses, homeowners associations, families, and individuals are encouraged to participate.  Keep Leesburg Beautiful is a great opportunity for anyone who needs to complete community service hours or volunteer experience!

The Town provides supplies, including safety vests, gloves, and orange bags. Volunteers head out into neighborhoods to pickup litter or perform other clean up efforts and beautification projects. Volunteers report when and where they leave their orange bags. The Town handles collection of filled bags and other items. 

As an added bonus this year, each registered volunteer will receive a free one-day pass to Ida Lee Park Recreation Center! You must register all team members and submit a project report to the Town to receive your free passes. Volunteers do not need to be residents of the Town of Leesburg.

2010 Keep Leesburg Beautiful volunteersLast year we had over 160 volunteers and collected 222 bags of trash, as well as tires, bikes and large appliances.  This year, we want to do even more! Gather your friends, family, neighbors or co-workers and then select an area of Leesburg you would like to clean up or beautify. You can choose to work in your own community or choose a particular spot in town you think needs attention. We can also make suggestions for cleanup locations and help get permission from property owners (i.e., shopping centers) to work on their property.

Main areas of focus for Keep Leesburg Beautiful projects throughout the Town include:

  • Trash Pickup in Town Right-of-Ways
  • Stream Cleanup
  • Storm Drain Marking or Inventory
