Litter pollution is a growing and potentially hazardous problem. Wind, traffic, animals and water carry litter often far from its original source. It moves until it is trapped by our waterways, curbs, buildings, fences or some other obstacle. In our canals, litter can restrict water flow, pollute the water with unhealthy chemicals, trap or otherwise harm wildlife, provide a breeding ground for mosquitoes and damage canal structures and equipment.
The apparent lack of concern and loss of local pride results in a negative impact on property values, as well as just plain ugly vistas. Let's work together as a community to reverse this damage. KPB offers various programs to help everyone get involved, and lots of events are upcoming that will promote keeping our county clean and lovely, as it should be.
If you would like to schedule a community cleanup, or would like to volunteer at an event to keep our local community clean and beautiful, or schedule an educational presentation, please contact Ramicah Watkins at (386) 325-9598.
Please contact us anytime! We look forward to hearing from you.
