KPB would like to encourage the residents of Pickens County to take in part the county wide cleanup during April.  Cleanup events are planned throughout April and will be announced in the Pickens Progress, Know Pickens over our local radio stations.  If your group or family is planning to do a special clean up or an event for Earth Day please let KPB know so we can recognizes your efforts.   Keep Pickens Beautiful Adopt A Road Volunteers will be picking up their assigned roadways during April.

KPB would like to thank all those who took part in last year’s GAC and encourage you to continue this work in 2016.  Be part of the big picture!
