The latest news from KPB ...
APRIL IS PROCLAIMED
GREAT AMERICAN CLEANUP NATIONWIDE
However this year due to the Coronavirus, KPB’s activities will be limited! Commissioner Jones still plans to allow our regular tire recycling disposal the same as in years past. Each family may bring 4 passenger tires, off the rims, to be recycled free of charge during the month of April. Commissioner Jones stated since we are all staying at home, it would be a good time to clean up and dispose of any tires you have laying around. Remember all old tires that are not disposed of are a breeding ground for misquotes.
KPB has canceled a planned program as part of the Great American Cleanup, “Cash for Trash.” This project was advertised in Pickens Progress last week has been canceled until further notice.
Thank you for your continued support of KPB, by doing your part to keep our beautiful county clean. Stay safe, this too will pass.

KPB, formerly Citizens for a Clean Community, was founded in 1989, comprised of a group of concerned citizens striving to develop a clean and beautiful environment for Pickens County. A part of the Keep America Beautiful Program, KPB seeks to improve quality of life by eliminating litter through increased public awareness. A key part of the waste “reduction” is “conservation” – using natural resources wisely and using less than usual in order to avoid waste.
At KPB we want you to know about us, to join us, and to do your part. Every one has a role! We can all learn to REDUCE, REUSE, AND RECYCLE. Georgia’s Litter It Costs You program has adopted the Georgia Brown Thrasher as a mascot. “TRASHER” is here to remind you to put litter in its place, and to encourage you to get involved.
