Citizens Concerned for a Cleaner County

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 was the first to obtain KAB affiliation in Maryland.  KPGCB welcomes your support.
