Community Stewards Program

Help Keep Flagstaff Beautiful

The City of Flagstaff relies on the willing assistance of hundreds of volunteers to assist with keeping our neighborhoods, trails, parks, and streets litter and graffiti free. The Flagstaff Sustainability Program offers programs for citizens to get involved in to make our city a better place to live.

30 Days Albert's Way!

Because our cleanups have been limited to individuals and households since March, we are launching a competition for the month of September called 30 Days Albert's Way! Using the Litterati app, we challenge you to pick up as much litter around Flagstaff as you can while following social distancing and mask guidelines. This not only helps us to keep Flagstaff litter free, it will also help us identify litter hotspots. 

Our goal is to beat last year's 12,207 total pieces of litter picked up during the One a Day in May challenge!

Community Stewards Program

Are you interested in taking ownership in your community? The Community Stewards Program keeps a list of available trails, streets, and open spaces that you or your group may adopt for at least two years. We can also connect your group with a one-time community clean-up project.

In order to become a steward, or host a one-time community clean-up project, please email Marissa Molloy or call at 928-213-2152. The application process is very simple and the program is rewarding.

Please note: To ensure our volunteers' health and safety, we are currently only supporting cleanups with individuals or households.
