In 2013, San Francisco Beautiful recognized #cleanstreets with a Beautification Award. Every Friday staffers from Square meetup with neighbors using the #cleanstreets hashtag and pick up and document trash from the SOMA neighborhood. This humble and hands-on approach is noteworthy.

For more than 40 years, San Francisco Beautiful has been honoring San Franciscans who make special contributions to the unique character and beauty of our City with the Annual Beautification Awards.
