What we're about

Whatever your age, background, or profession, we all live, work, and play within (and are supported by) this environment. This meetup group should serve as a forum for diverse organizations and individuals to execute trash cleanups in Richmond, Virginia, while educating our community on the damaging effects of litter and other pollutants. Let's beautify the city we love!

RVA Clean Sweep is a volunteer based clean up group. We are now under EnRichmond's non-profit umbrella.
