Programs of Keep Crisp Beautiful

America Recycles Day

November 15th is America Recycles Day, and an estimated 2 million people join the celebration. Keep Crisp Beautiful joins each year with a different theme or event to show why it’s important to recycle!

Litter Prevention

KCB partners with local businesses, clubs, and many others to do Community Cleanups. We work routinely with Code Enforcement Officers, Sheriffs Dept, Police Dept, Public Works Depts, Stormwater Technician, Forestry, Clubs, and Private Business & Industry.

Cigarette Litter Prevention Program

The Cigarette Litter Prevention Program addresses the issue by integrating four proven approaches: encouraging enforcement of litter laws that include cigarette litter; raising awareness about the issue using public service messages; placing ash receptacles at transition points such as entrances to public buildings; and distributing pocket ashtrays to adult smokers.
