A Cleaner Louisville

Through the simple act of picking up litter, we can help make the city cleaner, greener, and have a lasting economic impact on where we live. Trash comes from people not caring about their environment, but a little care can transform a street, neighborhood, or even a highway mile.

Community-Wide Cleanups

Twice a year, Brightside invites citizens of Louisville to participate in community-wide cleanups that happen in the Spring and Fall.

Neighborhood Cleanups

Smaller groups can organize their own neighborhood cleanups at any time of the year and Brightside will provide gloves, masks and trash bags at no cost.

Adopt A Mile

The Brightside Adopt-A-Mile program allows groups to adopt one-mile stretches of city roadways and to commit to keeping them clean for the one-year adoption period. Brightside welcomes any local community organization, such as civic, social, or school groups, as well as religious, businesses or neighborhood organizations to participate in the Adopt-A-Mile program.
