About Clean Memphis

Clean Memphis is a nonprofit organization founded in 2008 by a group of concerned citizens. 

 Our goal is to make Memphis the cleanest city in the country. 

We have three program platforms to achieve this mission:

1) Support Community Partnership - Helping communities organize routine cleanup projects and address blighted properties in their own neighborhoods.

 2) High-Profile Cleanup Sweeps using inmates and court-ordered community service workers.  Clean Memphis performs over 40 "sweeps" per month in important economic development areas of the city using inmates and community service workers.  These areas include The Medical Center, Downtown, The Aerotropolis and all areas of tourism.

3) Clean Memphis offers a comprehensive environmental education program for all schools in Shelby County.  Our curriculum is tied to state standards and utilizes the common core.  In addition to the classroom presentations we engage the students is various service learning projects in their communities.
