Keep Pickens Beautiful is proud to present our first quarter Green Ribbon Award to Jasper First Baptist Church. The church’s grounds are always tailored, neat, well groomed and “easy on the eye.” Our hats are off to them, and our thanks for helping to keep our community beautiful.
Pictured are Charles Pittard & Earl Gaskins, who co-chair the Grounds Committee, ably assisted by the most helpful volunteer Clint Chapman. Pastor Greg Pope is standing by to support them. Congratulations!

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.
