Information about the Albuquerque Clean Team
The Albuquerque Clean Team (ACT) is a group of individuals keeping their communities clean and safe.
Under the direction and support of the City of Albuquerque's Solid Waste Management Department, ACT brings together community groups and individual homeowners who want to take responsibility for creating and maintaining a clean community, and in the process create a better living, working, and playing environment. Read below to find out how you can become involved, or call ACT at the Clean Team Hotline, (505) 823-4ACT (4228).
What do ACT Members Do?
When you join ACT as an individual homeowner or part of a group (neighborhood, civic club, church, synagogue, school, scout troop, employee group, etc.), you volunteer to clean up a designated area as needed (at least four times per year).
Each Clean Team receives free garbage bags, gloves, and other available supplies. Upon request, the City of Albuquerque will also supply a truck to haul the trash your team collects, and will provide free passes to its convenience centers for disposal on the date(s) of your clean-up. You will also get a free ACT kit with materials to let everyone know about your clean-ups, ideas to help recruit team members, and tips on how to safely and effectively clean up the area for which you have taken responsibility.
As a member of ACT, you will also receive a free quarterly newsletter so you can share ideas and success stories with other teams. What's more, teams will be eligible to compete for prizes and awards.
