Keep Coffee County Beautiful (KCCB) exists to create a cleaner, greener, more beautiful Coffee County through beautification, litter prevention, and recycling and waste reduction. We enlist the citizens of our community to participate in creating and preserving a beautiful Coffee County in a number of ways. We educate our citizens, especially children and youth, that it is their responsibility to protect and preserve their environment(s). We enable them to put that responsibility into practice by joining us in community beautification and cleanup projects. We utilize local partnerships to fund ongoing planting and landscaping projects. We teach our citizens about reducing, reusing, and recycling and assist them in attaining the equipment necessary to successfully recycle. We discourage littering through a state-wide anti-litter campaign, encouraging enforcement of the litter laws, executing large litter pickup events, and encouraging personal responsibility
Programs: Keep Coffee County Beautiful believes firmly that education is the key to encouraging positive behaviors toward community improvement and personal responsibility. Throughout each school year we conduct a number of classroom presentations and school-wide assemblies to speak to K-12 mainly about not littering and recycling. In the past two years, we've reached over 4,000 students. In our presentations, we use a variety of age-appropriate aides such as story books, life-size mascots, games, trivia, and worksheets and handouts. We also try to always leave each child with some sort of small token or trinket by which to remember us and our environmental stewardship message.
