Keep OV Beautiful is a volunteer-driven program in which community members work together to pick up litter and roadside debris. In addition to being unsightly, litter and roadside debris can be a safety hazard for motorists and is harmful to wildlife. Help keep our Oro Valley views immaculate by participating in the Keep OV Beautiful program.
Keep OV Beautiful is a great way for your group or organization to give back to the community we love. Picking up litter is a simple act of service with a tremendous impact, and with this program, it’s now easier than ever.

Keep OV Beautiful Single-Day Event
Keep OV Beautiful is designed so that large groups can participate on a day that’s convenient for them. All you need to do is select your volunteer coordinator and have him/her start the registration process. Town staff will work with the coordinator to identify a date and location for the litter pick-up. The Town will provide safety vests, pick-up tools and trash bags. Once your pick-up day is complete, the Town will then collect and dispose of all the gathered trash the next business day.
A special note during this COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of Town residents and volunteers is our first priority. As such, participants will be asked to please observe to the appropriate COVID-19 safety precautions as recommended by the Pima County Health Department.
