2022 Mayor Hull's Rally in the Desert

Hulls Rally 2022

Join Keep Rio Rancho Beautiful during Mayor Hull's 2022 Rally in the Desert Cleanup! Saturday, September 24, 2022 - 7:00 - 11:00 a.m.

 Take part in the City's largest open space cleanup geared toward removing litter and illegally dumped waste from our streets, parks and mesas.  Over the past three years, citizens, business and community groups have removed over 65 tons of illegally dumped waste throughout our community as part of this annual event.  

This year we hope to remove at least 35 tons of waste, and we need your help to get it done!

 As our community grows, the amount of littered and illegally dumped waste on the city’s vast mesas and open spaces increases.  While the City does what it can to offer ways to dispose of waste legally, and enforce our anti-litter and anti-dumping laws, many instances of littering and dumping still occur.  We need help from our volunteers to remove this waste and protect all of our citizens and our natural resources.  

Please download the Volunteer Registration Form, then complete and return it Keep Rio Rancho Beautiful by or before Monday, September 16.  

Forms can be submitted by email to STDOMINGUEZ@rrnm.gov, by fax at 505-891-5205, or mail/delivery to Keep Rio Rancho Beautiful at Rio Rancho City Hall, 3200 Civic Center Circle NE, Suite 100, Rio Rancho, NM 87144.

Registered volunteers will have access to cleanup dumpsters, bags and gloves, and the first 300 volunteers will receive reusable water bottles, reusable straws and other resources.   The top three groups that remove the largest amount of waste will receive cash prizes provided by Waste Management of New Mexico, Inc.
