Fall Sweep is a program to support the efforts of KTB Affiliates, nonprofits, volunteers, corporations, scout troops and other community groups to organize fall cleanups and beautification projects. Registered participants will have access to an online event toolkit and receive trash bags and other cleanup supplies.

Fall Sweep opens September 11 and runs through the Sunday before Thanksgiving. All cleanup and beautification activity within this time frame is eligible for free cleanup supplies. Be sure to order supplies 3 weeks prior to your scheduled cleanup to ensure timely shipment. Requests close October 27.
