Making St. Louis a cleaner, greener, better place to live!

Dedicated to cleaning, greening St. Louis since 1982

From graffiti removal to Blitz to the daffodils that sprout their blooms all around town, Brightside St. Louis is the city’s oldest and most comprehensive not-for-profit cleaning and greening group. Learn more about what we’re doing to grow an even more beautiful St. Louis!
