Keep Pickens Beautiful Receives Two Awards
3/14/2017 ~ by Carol Opdenhoff - Keep Pickens Beautiful is proud to announce we have received two awards for outstanding work here in Pickens County.
◌ The Governors Circle Award presented by the state of Georgia for our work in reducing litter and beautification in our county.
◌ The Presidentís Award from Keep American Beautiful, represents participating in many activities throughout the year to qualify and meet their requirements.
One of the activities is to conduct a litter index each year to measure the amount of litter on our roadways and track it from year to year. Our Adopt A Road Volunteers do a great job, keeping our roadways cleaned up; this saves the County money and man hours. Our beautification volunteers work on projects that enhance the environment and add to the beauty of our County.
KPB is proud to accept these awards on behalf of all of our volunteers who help throughout the year to maintain, beautify and participate in our recycling program. Our special thanks to all of our supporters who help make these awards possible.
