CLEAN up PAHRUMP® is the first southern Nevada chapter of Desert Pigs, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based out of Dayton, Nevada. Our mission is to make Pahrump a beautiful place to live and play.
Hey there! I moved to Pahrump, Nevada in the summer of 2017. Shortly after I moved here, I noticed a trash problem on BLM land and along the roadsides while out riding my horse.
One day, after boldly suggesting on a social media site that someone simply pick up some trash that they were otherwise complaining about, the admin of said site got involved and scolded me for suggesting that someone actually do something for their community and help clean up. The same person then suggested that I go off and create a betterment of Pahrump page, or something to that effect. That afternoon I drove my truck off of S. Fox Ave onto BLM land. It took me 1 hour to load the bed of my truck with trash, and that is how I came up with the concept of cleaning up 1 hour weekly.
From there I enlisted help and the rest is history: CLEAN up PAHRUMP® was born!
Jump to 2022: After being away from New England for nearly 5 years I felt called back to my home territory.
At that point, CLEAN up PAHRUMP® joined forces with Desert Pigs and became their first southern Nevada chapter.
Fast forwarding once again to 2023: it took about a year away to realize that New England just wasn’t my home any longer. There’s definitely something to be said about 300+ days of sun. Mid July, I once again packed up my horse, dog, and belongings and made the journey back to the desert and rejoined CuP!
