Volunteer for a Clean Community
KLLCB encourages residents to take action for a clean, healthy and safe community. Our organization’s goals are accomplished in large part through the assistance of community volunteers. Year-round volunteer opportunities are available for groups and individuals, and most projects are flexible to meet the needs and schedules of volunteers.

Current Volunteer Opportunities
Litter cleanups: Help maintain a clean City and County. Cleanups must take place in public areas including streets, alleys, County roads, parks, schools and recreation areas. Volunteers are assigned a specific area for cleanup and are supplied with trash bags, safety vests and other equipment. These projects can be scheduled throughout the year. They are a great volunteer opportunity for groups and are open to all ages.
Storm Water Awareness Program (SWAP): Help label over 20,000 storm drains in Lincoln with "No Dumping - Drains to Creek" markers. Volunteers apply markers to storm drains, distribute educational flyers to residents and pick up litter in the work area. Excellent group opportunity, open to all ages.
