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.

TrasherAt KPB we want you to know about us, to join us, and to do your part.  Every one has a role!
