Fall Clean-up Day

Keep Santa Fe BeautifulSaturday, September 26

Keep Santa Fe Beautiful, in cooperation with the City of Santa Fe and New Mexico Clean and Beautiful, are sponsoring the annual communitywide Trek for Trash Fall Clean-Up Day.

Citizens, businesses, schools, and neighborhood & civic groups are asked to join Keep Santa Fe Beautiful and the City of Santa Fe's Solid Waste Management and Parks divisions for a clean-up day at city parks, school campuses, neighborhoods, rights-of-way and other visible public areas around the city. Residents who need to fulfill community service requirements are encouraged to participate.

Trek for Trash Fall Clean-Up volunteers will meet at 1142 Siler Road between 7 and 9 a.m. to pick up refuse bags and gloves. Volunteers can clean areas they have identified or be assigned an area to clean by Keep Santa Fe Beautiful. City crews will pick up and dispose of the refuse collected by volunteers.

Keep Santa Fe Beautiful hosts a post clean-up picnic beginning at about noon at the Nancy Rodriguez Center, 1 Prairie Loop, "to thank volunteers who participate in the community clean up,” said Keep Santa Fe Beautiful Coordinator Gilda Montaño. The Nancy Rodriguez Center is located on Lopez Lane north of Agua Fria between the Agua Fria Fire Station and La Familia Medical Center. Parking is available at the center.
