History and Background

Organized in 1982 as a simple spring cleanup effort, the founding members of the Prince William Clean Community Council quickly recognized the importance of education to long-term success. The organization now administers several year-round comprehensive programs encouraging community involvement and environmental education and stewardship. Our goal is to prevent littering, facilitate community beautification and educate citizens on proper waste habits, enhancing community awareness of the hazards/costs of littering while involving citizens in solutions to waste and litter problems.

After a rigorous certification process, the Council became a certified affiliate of Keep America Beautiful (KAB), the undisputed authority on litter prevention issues throughout the world. Then, in spring 2012 the Clean Community Council became Keep Prince William Beautiful. Proud to be aligned with both an award winning green community and national network of over 1000 other environmental community organizations, renaming ourselves Keep Prince William Beautiful is an honor.
