From the Executive Director . . .
As the executive director of Keep Brevard Beautiful, I know people want to live and do business in a beautiful community. Our residents and businesses are interested in cultural offerings, schools, entertainment, sports, and the environment, not only the trees-and-plants part of the environment, but the living environment. When people consider relocating here or opening a business and recruiting employees, the living environment of the community is a crucial component of their decision.
For the past 30 years, Keep Brevard Beautiful has worked tirelessly to keep our communities clean, with a focus on eradicating litter. KBB educates the citizens of our county about recycling and diminishing waste and strives to assist with attracting businesses and tourists to our lovely communities. Our goal is to cultivate an area our citizens are proud to call home and our visitors want to return to year after year.
As an affiliate of our national organization, Keep America Beautiful, we all work together to keep our communities clean, safe and vital today and tomorrow. In the months and years to come we will seek to further involve our youth in our programs. After all, they will be the ones to carry KBB’s mission into the future.
