About GAC

For 30 years, Dentonites have taken an active role in keeping their city clean and beautiful by participating in the Great American Cleanup (GAC). GAC is part of a national effort with Keep America Beautiful, and more than 20,000 communities take part each year.

In 2018, 2,200+ Denton volunteers joined together to clean up more than 9.5 tons of litter. These dedicated community members removed trash and recycling from our city’s streets, waterways, and public spaces, leaving Denton visibly cleaner and more beautiful.
