Keep Austin Clean is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to help keep Austin greenbelts, parks, and trails clean for the next generation.

Latest Project

KAC's first "SOLO Clean-Up" in May!!

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we wanted to protect all of our volunteers and did not hold a clean-up in April.

But we had a GREAT idea for our May clean-up.  We are seeing that many of you are still able to take walks and visit some parks that are not yet closed.  While we keep practicing "social distancing", we urge you to bring along a trash bag and collect any trash you find.

Please snap before-and-after pictures, and we will post them in a new photo gallery highlighting all of YOUR pictures!

Please follow all of the restrictions and closures.

We will get through this together.  Be smart, stay safe out there!


March's First Tuesday at Bartholomew Park

We had a total of eleven volunteers cleaning up this amazing park!

We found a huge carpet, tons of "regular" garbage, THREE shopping carts, and all sorts of goodies.

Everything was so decomposed, we could not recycle anything.  But we had a total of 580 pounds of rubbish!
