About Tucson Clean & Beautiful
Tucson Clean & Beautiful is a non-profit environmental advocacy, action and stewardship organization dedicated to preserving and improving our environment, conserving natural resources, and enhancing the quality of life within the City of Tucson and eastern Pima County. We accomplish these goals through an array of programs that emphasize personal action, recycling and waste reduction, land stewardship, urban forestry and beautification.
Tucson Clean & Beautiful, established in 1985 to help keep our community litter free, has grown as an advocate for broader environmental issues and now coordinates many programs and projects with a diversity of partners including government agencies, community groups, businesses and private citizens. Support from grants, memberships, donations from local businesses and citizens, in-kind donations of materials and services, and thousands of community volunteers are essential elements of our successful programs!
