Keep Austin Beautiful Announces 2011 Clean Sweep

Winter weather may have finally joined us, but Keep Austin Beautiful (KAB) is already thinking of spring.  Each year KAB hosts Clean Sweep – Austin’s annual citywide cleanup event.  Last year more than 4,300 volunteers pre-registered to clean 129 sites!
