We all want to be part of a cleaner and greener North Carolina. You can participate in a number of ways that will make an impact on preserving the beauty of our state. Put your resources to the litter prevention, beautification and recycling cause. Make a donation to KNCB, give of your time by adopting a highway, reporting a litterbug or educating our youth.
Keep North Carolina Beautiful (KNCB) is a 501 © (3) nonprofit organization that enters into partnerships with a network of local affiliates statewide to enhance the natural beauty of North Carolina communities, improve solid waste handling practices and encourage individuals to take greater responsibility for improving community environments. There are 31 affiliates statewide.
All donations made to KNCB are tax deductible. Contributions are earmarked for educational and community-improvement programs that focus on litter prevention, waste reduction/recycling and beautification. KNCB affiliates adhere to the strict guidelines enforced by KAB which require annual reporting of litter clean-ups and the litter picked up, documentation of volunteer hours, a litter index and cost/benefit analysis.
Contact your local affiliate to see how you can get involved in community litter prevention, waste reduction/recycling and beautification efforts. If you do not have an affiliate in your county, please contact the KNCB staff in Raleigh.
