Clean City Initiative
The Clean City Initiative is a program that combines the efforts of several City departments and programs into a unified strategy to improve the appearance of our community. The Clean City Initiative will combine the efforts of Keep Mesquite Beautiful, Mesquite Parks and Recreation, Environmental Code and Solid Waste to promote litter prevention, beautification projects and improved regulations.
The Clean City Initiative will be dedicated to outreach and education to all citizens on the importance of a litter free community. Increased litter impacts property values, economic development and the quality of life of a community. This initiative will set a goal to reach every elementary school student every year with a litter prevention message. The initiative will also promote a community spirit of taking action to prevent litter and encourage a better appearance of the community in general.
The Clean City Initiative will update and implement new codes and regulations regarding the manner in which trash is collected in the community and how our public and commercial spaces will look. New Solid Waste regulations, zoning changes and increased landscape requirements for new businesses will be the key pieces of the initiative.
The Clean City Initiative will strive to engage citizens in cleaning up the community. From litter collections to beautification projects, the initiative will create opportunities for neighborhoods, schools and businesses to take an active role in creating an attractive community.

In 2020, Mayor Bruce Archer called upon a citizen committee to evaluate the appearance of the community and provide input on how best to improve how our community looks. The Clean City Task Force provided a recommendation to the City Council that forms the basis of the Clean City Initiative. Watch the December 21, 2020 briefing to the City Council regarding the mayor’s Clean City Initiative.
