KPB Earns “President’s Award” …. Again!
Keep Pickens Beautiful is proud to announce we have received “The President’s Award” again this year. The award is presented by Keep America Beautiful for our work in reducing litter and beautification in our county. One of the activities is to conduct a litter index each year to measure the amount of litter on our roadways and track it from year to year. Our Adopt A Road Volunteers do a great job, keeping our roadways cleaned up; this saves the County money and man-hours. Our beautification volunteers work on projects that enhance the environment and add to the beauty of our County.
KPB is proud to accept this award on behalf of all of our volunteers who help throughout the year to maintain, beautify and participate in our recycling program. Our special thanks to all of our supporters who help make these awards possible.

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.
