Keep Kansas City Beautiful


Keep Kansas City Beautiful

Mission

Our mission is to involve citizens, businesses and government in creating a cleaner and more beautiful Kansas City region. Keep Kansas City Beautiful formed in May 2000 as an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful and Bridging The Gap to work in partnership with citizens, businesses and government in creating a cleaner and more beautiful metropolitan Kansas City.

 

In 2011, more than 200 volunteers completed 240 shifts representing 772 hours of time donated to serve on the KKCB Board of Directors or committees, survey litter, clean litter, landscape, recycle, plant gardens, hold environmental events, manage data, present educational information and more. Local citizens are also making an impact by reducing waste at special outdoor events. In 2011, Keep Kansas City Beautiful served 46 Green and Litter-Free Events where 182,419 event attendees recycled more than 7.7 tons of material.

 

The efforts of community partners and thousands of volunteers have had such a great impact that according to the 2012 Keep Kansas City Beautiful Litter Index, the most littered neighborhoods from the past eight years are cleaner!
