As the country continues to deal with the pandemic, it is as important as ever to help end litter across our great nation. This means we should all make sure that waste (including PPE) is placed in the trash. Recycling properly is also helpful.

This annual community improvement program collected over 40 million pounds of litter and recyclables in 2019!

Each year, Keep Cobb Beautiful in addition to over 1,200 affiliates and participating organizations engage volunteers to take action in their communities through programs that deliver positive and lasting impact through events focused on beautifying parks and recreation areas, cleaning waterways, handling recycling collections, picking up litter, planting trees and flowers, and conducting educational programs and litter-free events.

The Great American Cleanup annually engages more than 500,000 volunteers and participants, whose work returns, on average, more than $100 million in measurable benefits across more than 15,000 participating communities.
