About Us

Keep Polk County Beautiful, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and is an affiliate of Keep Florida Beautiful, Inc. and Keep America Beautiful, Inc.

Created in 1994 and certified by Keep America Beautiful, Inc. in 1996, this non-profit organization works with civic, business, government, educational and community groups across the county to improve the aesthetic and ecological value of our communities through litter control and prevention, beautification, waste reduction, recycling and proper handling and disposal of solid waste.

Over the past 25+ years, Keep Polk County Beautiful has recruited tens of thousands of volunteers and collected hundreds of thousands of pounds of litter and illegally dumped items and tires through our many projects, programs and events. Through the support of donors and volunteers, KPCB has successfully contributed to a cleaner and healthier environment in Polk County.
