Keep Yankton Beautiful will be hosting our annual Great American Cleanup on Saturday, April 12th.

It’s that time again to sign up for our annual communitywide cleanup and volunteers are needed to help make this a successful event! We encourage families, individuals, businesses, schools, and other groups to sign up soon to join us in keeping our beloved community clean and beautiful!

Volunteers will meet at the Memorial Park Picnic Shelter at 8:00am for an informational meeting and safety briefing regarding the cleanup and routes. Volunteers will receive complimentary donuts, coffee and bottled water as well as needed supplies for the Cleanup.

KYB will be selecting cleanup routes before the actual Cleanup. We welcome suggestions in regards to cleanup locations so let us know if there are any areas around town that you feel need special attention. If you are interested in participating as an individual, a family unit or you would like to sign up your workplace and volunteer as a team, contact our Director, Camille Swift-Slowey at info@keepyanktonbeautiful.org or find Keep Yankton Beautiful on Facebook!
