Since 2007, a total of 53.6 tons of trash and debris have been collected. While the trash collection does vary from year to year depending on a variety of factors, we believe that your participation is making a difference! Also, the lowest collection year was in 2016 where 0.78 tons of trash was collected. That year, like this year, the Cleanup was preceded by winter storms, so maybe a significant amount of trash was washed downstream into the lakes and/or was inaccessible to Cleanup volunteers in debris piled up by large creek flows.

Planning for next year is already underway…

Ways for You to be Involved

This annual event not only cleans up and beautifies the community, it also provides an opportunity for people to come together for a common cause and make a difference.

Cleanup Participants

500 of your friends and neighbors will be working together to clean up the creeks! The Pre-Registration deadline is March 31st. We encourage you to register now and ensure your spot.

Required Pre-Registration Opens Soon

Behind the Scenes Volunteers

Many people are needed to Help Behind the Scenes before, during, and after the Cleanup. It’s a great way to be involved for those who aren’t so keen to tromp around outside getting physical.


Granite Creek Cleanup would not be possible without event Sponsors. They represent a rich cross-section of businesses, NGOs, and individuals in the community.

Who Makes it All Possible?

You / Volunteers

Since 2007, volunteers have contributed over 7,000 hours valued at almost $400,000 in service to the community! An average of 470 volunteers turn out each year with pre-registration climbing to 77% in 2019. COVID Adaptations in 2021 and 2022, led to REQUIRED PRE-REGISTRATION. This streamlines the process for both Prescott Creeks and participants.

We hope you’ll join us.

Sponsors make this event possible! Historically, Sponsors have represented a rich cross-section of  Prescott ranging from sandwich shops to public utilities, from home builders to other not-for-profit organizations, from civic groups to individuals.

Sponsorships support the event through both cash and in-kind contributions.
