Clean-Up Days

Help beautify our community and protect our environment by picking up trash on your own or during one of our organized clean-up events!

Trash across our community gets washed into our streams when it rains, and we need your help to keep our streams healthy! Spending even a few minutes picking up trash can make a difference.

Find organized clean-ups with other groups in our calendar, check out what areas are being cleaned in our interactive map, and report your own clean-up so we can recognize you for your hard work.

If you get out and pick up trash, whether by yourself or with a group, make sure to share your photos with us by tagging @cfwep and #CFWEPEarthMonth. We want to see all the awesome work you do!

Our partners at the Butte Chamber of Commerce will launch the Beautify Butte Adopt-A-Lot Campaign on April 22 to help us launch Earth Month and are happy to provide garbage bags free of charge to support your efforts in helping Spring Clean our beautiful town. Call 406-723-3177.
