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. 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. Following our affiliation status, in spring 2012, the Clean Community Council became Keep Prince William Beautiful. Proud to be aligned with both an award-winning green community and a national network of over 1000 other environmental community organizations, renaming ourselves Keep Prince William Beautiful is an honor.
History and Background
Our organization now administers several year-round comprehensive programs encouraging community involvement and environmental education and stewardship. Our hope is to engage community members through our outreach and education on environmental stewardship and sustainability, excite community members by developing within our neighbors and friends a sense of pride in their community, and empower community members to take action to keep Prince William County clean and beautiful.
