What We Do?

Keep Jackson Beautiful, Inc. is a non-profit, certified local affiliate of Keep America Beautiful dedicated to changing attitudes and behavior towards environmental issues such as littering and recycling. Our programs focus on education, litter reduction, recycling and beautification of Jackson.

RECYCLING

Preservation

Recycle your dry cleaning, newspaper, bread bags, and also the plastic film on products like paper towels. Plastic bottle caps are usually recyclable along with the bottle! You can even recycle your wireless phone!

ANTI-LITTER

Prevention

Keep your yard clean and free of things that can blow into the street and become litter. Set an example by not littering. Litter is also expensive. The annual cost of roadside litter is $115 million a year. Keep a litterbag in your car.

GREENING

Beautification

Forests and plants are not only essential to the health and livability of our cities and towns, they're good for our wallets! Trees that are planted within fifty feet of a residence can raise property values by 9%. You can make a difference.

Want to help us
Keep Jackson Beautiful?

As citizens of this city, we should have a desire to magnify its beauty by keeping our neighborhoods, schools, highways, and parks in excellent condition. Keeping Jackson clean and green is essential to improving the quality of life, economic growth and prosperity of the entire city. 

Keep Jackson Beautiful would like to assist any schools, neighborhood associations, block clubs,  and volunteer organizations, local churches, businesses, sororities and fraternities, and other civic organizations with cleanup and beautification projects within Jackson city limits. If your organization would like to organize a cleanup project, first complete the organizer tool kit and second please fill out this application electronic form or return the hard copy to the Keep Jackson Beautiful.  All requirements must be met in order to schedule a cleanup project including notification two weeks prior to the cleanup date.
