Clinton Joins Keep America Beautiful
This year, the City of Clinton is proud to announce that it is joining hundreds of other communities in the struggle for community improvement by becoming a Keep America Beautiful affiliate. By undertaking this venture, we hope to encourage the citizens of Clinton to join with us in efforts to clean up and prevent litter, to be more responsible in solid waste management and disposal, and to improve the aesthetic virtue of our city with community greening and beautification projects. Our official affiliate name will be “Keep Clinton Beautiful”.
Keep America Beautiful is the nation’s leading nonprofit that brings people together to build and sustain vibrant communities. With a strong national network of affiliates and partners, the national nonprofit works with millions of volunteers who take action in their communities. Keep America Beautiful offers solutions that create clean, beautiful public places, reduce waste and increase recycling, inspire generations of environmental stewards, and generate positive impact on local economies. Through myriad programs and public-private partnerships, Keep America Beautiful engages individuals to take greater responsibility for improving their community’s environment.
The KAB network of affiliates mobilizes an estimated 4 million volunteers each year to take positive action on environmental concerns. By joining with this program, the City of Clinton is taking responsibility for the appearance and well-being of our community and hopes that each member of the community will accept the challenge to volunteer with Keep Clinton Beautiful programs.
