The latest news from KPB ...
Doris Wigington City Park Extension
Keep Pickens Beautiful has been working in the City park extension located off Lumber Company Road. KPB has purchased a Cabana (pictured) and done grounds work around the building. New recycle and trash containers have been put in place for the convenience of those who wish to have a picnic in the park.
The park is located at the trail head of a walking path that is a loop about 2 ½ miles long. It is scenic and very lovely peaceful place, until the local train passes through. Take a picnic lunch and check it out.
If you would like to join KPB and help keep our county clean and beautiful, call our office at 706-253-3600, or visit our web page at www.keeppickensbeautiful.org, for more information.

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.
