Keep Prince George’s Beautiful
Keep Prince George's County Beautiful (KPGCB) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), corporation that partners with the Department of Environmental Resources' Waste Management Division to create cleaner, greener, litter-free communities. The organization’s mission is to empower County citizens and residents to take stewardship for their environment by promoting recycling, litter prevention, beautification and cleanup programs. Benefiting from its association with the Keep America Beautiful, Inc. (KAB) network of nearly 1,200 affiliates and participating organizations, and memberships with the Maryland Recycling Network and Prince George’s Chamber of Commerce, KPGCB supports the County through the development and implementation of waste management programs, which include:
- Green Team School Program (in partnership with Prince George’s County Public Schools)
- KAB Great American Clean-Up
- KAB Cigarette Litter Prevention Program
- KAB Wipe Out Wireless Waste
The Prince George’s County Council created this volunteer-based, outreach organization in 1976 under the name of Citizens Concerned for a Cleaner County (CCCC). In 1995, CCCC became an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful and is currently a member of KAB’s prestigious President’s Circle. A leader, Keep Prince George’s County Beautiful is the only affiliate in Maryland.
