Keep Lincoln and Lancaster County Beautiful (KLLCB), a program of the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department, is seeking volunteers of all ages to participate in Keep America Beautiful's Great American Cleanup. The Great American Cleanup is the nation's largest community improvement program with about four million volunteers participating in more than 20,000 communities across the country.
Last year, about 1,600 local volunteers worked on 180 cleanup projects along roadsides and in parks and other public areas. They collected 21 tons of recyclable material and properly disposed of about 53 tons of trash.
Individuals and volunteer groups are needed. To volunteer, contact KLLCB at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-441-8035.
Funds for cleanup projects are available through grants from KLLCB. For more information on these grant programs, visit lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: kllcb).
