 Residents Encouraged to Participate in “Keep Leesburg Beautiful” Cleanup Challenge

The one day event will take place on Saturday, October 17, 2020.

Keep Leesburg Beautiful

Leesburg, VA (September 15, 2020) – The Town of Leesburg’s Environmental Advisory Commission (EAC) invites Leesburg residents to participate in a "Keep Leesburg Beautiful" challenge on Saturday, October 17, 2020.

The annual campaign, which allows the public to get involved in cleaning the Town, normally takes place during the month of April. Due to COVID-19, the original spring clean-up was cancelled.

Residents, community groups, and businesses are encouraged to participate in the upcoming challenge by conducting their own trash clean-up activity. At the conclusion of the challenge, participants will be encouraged to post a selfie with the trash they collected to either the Town’s Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram page using the hashtag #KeepLeesburgBeautiful.

The Town of Leesburg will provide safety vests, gloves, and trash bags, which can be picked up at the Liberty Street parking lot on the day of the event between 9 and 10 a.m. To avoid unnecessary interaction and congregation of participants, a drive-through will be set up.

Groups and individuals interested in participating should visit the Town of Leesburg website at for details about how to participate.
