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

Dedicated to cleaning, greening St. Louis since 1982

At Brightside St. Louis, our mission is to improve the quality of life in our community by educating, engaging and inspiring St. Louisans to make our region cleaner, greener and more environmentally sustainable.

From graffiti removal to our sustainable Demonstration Garden to the daffodils that sprout their blooms all around town, Brightside St. Louis is the city’s oldest and most comprehensive nonprofit cleaning and greening organization. Check out our work to grow an even more beautiful St. Louis!

Brightside is funded through donations from individuals, companies and foundations and by a grant from HUD and the St. Louis Community Development Administration.

It’s Not Too Late to Clean Up!

Thank you to everyone who purchased flower bulbs to beautify homes and neighborhoods! You help us continue to keep St. Louis cleaner and more beautiful.

Fall is also the perfect time of year to complete a Blitz cleanup. Project Blitz engages residents in cleaning up St. Louis city neighborhoods.  It’s a fantastic opportunity to join your neighbors in making your neighborhood better.  It’s your chance to help clean up the area streets, alleys and vacant lots. All you have to do is supply the energy. Brightside will supply the tools and trash bags! Register today!

Projects can be scheduled year-round, allowing groups to select a clean up date and location that is convenient for them.  Be sure to register your project at least one week in advance.

To register your project fill out the online form, or print and mail the 2023 Blitz Registration Form.

We need your help.

Your donations allow us to do what we do. Please help!
