Keep Jackson Beautiful is a national nonprofit, public education organization dedicated to preserving the natural beauty and environment of Jackson by educating individuals about litter prevention and ways to properly manage solid waste materials – reduce, reuse, and recycle. We will work with volunteers from all walks of life on projects that help our city. Our programs also allow students to earn community service hours and make a difference in our environment at the same time.
Keep Jackson beautiful volunteers have a sincere desire to 'give something back to the community'. They are not afraid of hard, dirty work. They truly care for their fellow man and will go into any area of the city that needs help. They have fun, always working together as a team. We shower them with our thanks and appreciation, and they return year after year to help us Keep Jackson Beautiful! We assess our problem areas, develop projects to address them, and we show the results.
We have on going projects, but if you know of a problem area tell us about it and we will rally our troops to work on a solution. Special projects include: Litter Free Sports Events, Arbor Day Tree Plantings, Earth Day Programs, Garbage Art Recycling Contest, Great American Cleanup, and the Jackson Community Garden Initiative.

More than 350 children in libraries, schools, and summer camps across the city participated in the summer reading program. The stories are about recycling and littering and allow the children to see how one person can make a difference in their own environment. One of our largest neighborhood cleanups was done in Washington Addition neighborhood with JSU students as the volunteers.
Volunteers are local students and organizations like AmeriCorps, Mississippi Commission for Volunteer Service, and National & Community Service Corporation. That means that we love working with civic groups, church groups, sororities and fraternities, environmental clubs, service clubs, and everyone else.
Our volunteers work hard but it's rewarding work and we have FUN! If your school or class wants to clean up the campus, plant trees or do a recycling project – please contact us.
