Our Story

Contact: info@keeproswellbeautiful.org

Roswell, Georgia – a city steeped in history, culture, and beautiful natural surroundings. We at Keep Roswell Beautiful count ourselves fortunate to live here. And although we may have originally come from other cities or other states, Roswell is our home.

KRB’s mission is to educate, motivate, and empower the citizens and businesses of Roswell in the beautification, conservation, and preservation of our environment. We take that mission seriously and employ a variety of methods, such as community education and programs that promote litter control, recycling, and community beautification, to reach our goals. Our efforts today help ensure a beautiful, thriving Roswell for tomorrow.

Moreover, as a 501 (c) 3 organization (not-for-profit), we depend on our dedicated volunteers, neighbors from all walks of life with different experiences and a range of ages but one common goal: to improve Roswell and conserve our natural resources. KRB partners with the City of Roswell Environmental/Public Works Department to bring to Roswell’s citizens such programs as Adopt-A-Road, Adopt-A-Stream, Storm Drain Marking, the Great American Cleanup, Bring One for the Chipper, and Rivers Alive.

Programs

Our programs and events offer a variety of volunteer opportunities for families, individuals, scout groups, non-profits, corporations, and others to work together to make a real difference in our community. For example, in 2013:

  • Our Adopt-A-Road program boasts 42 active groups, 132 clean-up events, 177 miles of cleaned roadways, 419 bags of trash, and 865 volunteer hours.
  • Our Adopt-A-Stream program comprised seven active groups, 28 monitoring events, and 42.4 volunteer hours.
  • At our Bring One for the Chipper event in January, around 11,000 Christmas trees were recycled at two different area Home Depot stores.KirbyShovel 145x300 Our Story
  • 206 volunteers lent a hand at Riverside Park during our Rivers Alive event in September.

As our 25th anniversary approaches, Keep Roswell Beautiful continues to build on a strong foundation of past achievements. Since 2003, KRB has won the annual Keep America Beautiful President’s Circle Award. Other past recognitions include Keep Georgia Beautiful’s Community Improvement Award, Litter Prevention Award, and Affiliate Award; Rivers Alive Outstanding Waterway Cleanup Award; and Keep America Beautiful’s System Award.
