An estimated 45,000 + will join millions nationwide to participate in the 2020 Great American Cleanup (GAC).

Individuals and groups wishing to participate in the GAC in Oklahoma must register through Keep Oklahoma Beautiful (KOB). Registered groups are able to receive free cleanup supplies, program materials and grant opportunities. Free supplies included; trash bags, gloves, vests, bottled water, T-shirts and promotional banners. Any group that registers before March 20 will be able to pick up their specific supply order from their county ODOT office. Groups that register for supplies after March 20 can make arrangements for delivery or may be required to pay for shipping. 

Registered groups can also register to receive Disney World tickets through Disney’s All for Good program. Groups can register at https://www.allforgood.org/projects/4Q0eaz8R. Once the groups have registered for both programs (GAC & Disney) and completed their cleanup, including a wrap up report; Disney will provide a limited supply of tickets to registered groups. This is the first year Disney has partnered with Keep Oklahoma Beautiful, you will not want to miss out on this wonderful opportunity.

Registered groups also have access to cash grants, sponsored by OGE Energy Corp., and equipment grants, sponsored by P&K equipment. OGE GAC Cash Grant applications close on Feb. 15. P&K Equipment Grant applications close on Feb. 21. All GAC grant opportunities are located at https://www.keepoklahomabeautiful.com/what-we-do/great-american-cleanup.html
