WHAT IS KEEP AMERICA BEAUTIFUL?

Keep America Beautiful of Edgecombe and Nash Counties is YOUR certified affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, the nation's largest community improvement network. The goal of KAB is to make the Twin Counties cleaner and more attractive by uniting efforts of neighborhood groups, churches, businesses, government agencies, service clubs and youth groups.

KAB is working to improve community litter habits and understanding of the impact of litter on our natural and neighborhood environments in four major ways:

  • KAB coordinates and promotes the Adopt-a-Spot litter pickup program which enables individuals, families, churches and other civic groups to adopt a street, stream or spot on a long term basis.

  • KAB organizes and supports volunteers in and conducting one time litter pickups and promotes participation in seasonal litter pickups such as the spring Clean Sweep and the North Carolina Big Sweep in the fall.

  • KAB conducts and supports volunteers in teaching litter education programs in schools, churches, boys and girls clubs, scout troops, and at special community events such as the Downeast Festival of the Arts and other expos and educational events.

  • KAB promotes waste reduction and recycling through programs such as the Rocky Mount area and Tarboro area phonebook recycling programs.

KAB is funded by our tax dollars and is here to serve our community, so please utilize our KAB programs. The KAB coordinator offers litter education presentations free of charge, to businesses, civic groups, and schools. We also participate in community fairs, conferences and other local events.
