One Million Pounds of Trash Removed By The High Desert Keepers

Tri-Community NewsPlus


The 501(c)3 organization, High Desert Keepers, celebrates the removal of over 1 million pounds of trash from our high desert community. The organization was founded by Scott Brown in 2017 and has now removed an equivalent of 2 empty Boeing 747 airplanes or over 506.62 tons of trash.

The High Desert Keepers holds community clean-ups and collaborates with the City of Victorville, Hesperia, and Adelanto to ensure that illegal dumping is eradicated and to keep our high desert trash free. The non-profit is currently contracted with the City of Adelanto to perform monthly clean-ups and we will work with neighboring cities to continue their mission of keeping the high desert clean.

The High Desert Keepers would like to thank our volunteers, donors, and the continued support from the Tri-Community which allows them to continue their work and reach new milestones.

The High Desert Organization is a non-profit dedicated to removing trash and eradicating illegal dumping in the high desert. To support their efforts, follow them on Instagram and like their Facebook page under High Desert Keepers. They also accept donations throughout the year.
