Bayview Beautification Day

Power Skills

Bayview Beautification Day


Refuse Refuse aims to motivate San Franciscans to take action to clean their streets, beautify their neighborhoods, and encourage others to join their cause. They organize their own events and cleanup opportunities, and partner with other local organizations with the ultimate goal of keeping San Francisco free of refuse. Refuse Refuse partners with the SF Public Works’ Adopt A Street program, which has served as the umbrella of community cleanups for over 20 years, allowing volunteers to borrow supplies and schedule debris pickups for group events like this one.


Participants will positively impact San Francisco's Bayview neighborhood by beautifying streets along one of their iconic parks and public playgrounds. By enhancing PMP connection to the Earth, the PMISFBAC Sustainability Program will open minds to the possibilities we can bring to our operational practices to limit negative consequences on the planet. Participants will learn how Refuse Refuse influences public policy related to waste management by engaging city government, elected officials, and fellow San Franciscans to push for and implement policies that work to keep the city clean.
