Keep Bamberg County Beautiful

The office of Keep Bamberg County Beautiful (KBCB) focuses their mission on engaging citizens to take a greater responsibility for improving the environment of Bamberg County through efforts in beautification, litter prevention and waste reduction.

 

The department functions as an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, Inc. (KAB), a national non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the environment by empowering individuals to take greater responsibility of the protection and enhancement of their local communities.

 

As of the second quarter of 2015, KBCB has received, or assisted in brining in more than $100,000, in grant funds from various sources like PalmettoPride, DHEC, Keep America Beautiful and more. The organization has also assisted in planting more than 130 trees throughout the county, and they are also responsible for creating more than 10 green spaces throughout the county since July 2014.

 

Since their beginning, more than 20,000 pounds of litter have been collected from the roadways, boat landings and parks throughout the county. The department completes most of its work with close to 500 volunteers, and the majority of those volunteers are under the age of 18.

 

Along with working with volunteers, KBCB also works with the local South Carolina Department of Transportation office, local businesses, churches, groups and other organizations to fulfill its mission.
