Waterway Cleanup

Keep Polk County Beautiful, Inc. can assist your club or community group in organizing a waterway cleanup event. KPCB, Inc. will provide cleanup supplies and kayaks to groups who are wanting to assist in local waterway cleanup efforts.

Polk County is home to over 550 lakes covering over 93,000 acres and 3 major river systems.

Through a grant, KPCB in partnership with the City of Fort Meade are able to provide volunteers with kayaks for waterway cleanup events.  (6 single and 2 double kayaks and supplies).  KPCB will attend your event and host a tutorial while assisting with safety at your cleanup.  

If this is your first time coordinating a cleanup event, not to worry. You can contact KPCB to help you with organizing your cleanup event. You can also print a volunteer sign-up sheet to help get other people involved.  

If you are interested in hosting your own waterway cleanup or to request kayaks for your next cleanup, contact Keep Polk County Beautiful, Inc.  for more information.
