Citizens Invited to Join Countywide Effort to Keep Polk County Beautiful

- Annual Great American Cleanup Registration Open.

Keep Polk County Beautiful, Inc. invites you to participate in this year's Great American Cleanup Event kicking off March 1st. The Great American Cleanup is a nationwide cleanup initiative led by Keep America Beautiful. This cleanup event has taken place across the country for the past 36 years throughout the months of March, April and May annually.

The first 1,500 volunteers, who pre-register will receive a FREE T-Shirt and ticket to Bok Tower Gardens (while supplies are available). Cleanup volunteers are provided with garbage bags (buckets if available), gloves and safety vests. Additional cleanup and beautification supplies are available by request.

All beautification requests must be submitted in writing to the KPCB office no later than 3 weeks BEFORE your requested cleanup date to be considered.

This is a great opportunity for students to earn community service hours! Volunteers are encouraged to choose a location in their local community to help clean and beautify. Lakes, roadways, rivers and parks are great locations for volunteers to participate in the Great American Cleanup. Volunteers may also join in one of our community coordinated cleanups or recycling events. Contact our office for more information.

For more information on this and other local cleanup events or to pre-register to volunteer, contact Keep Polk County Beautiful, Inc. at (863)875-8911 or visit their website at
