March is a KCCB membership drive month. KCCB is partially funded by a litter grant from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality, fund raising projects, and memberships from businesses and individuals in the community. Members and volunteers are vital to help us promote litter prevention, beautification, waste reduction, and recycling. A few of our projects this year will include developing a litter hotline, providing educational programs for youth and adults, expanding participation in the 2014 Great American Cleanup, National Planting Day, and America Recycles Day.
February 24, 2014: Keep Cass County Beautiful received Keep America Beautiful President’s Circle Award during Keep America Beautiful’s 2014 National Conference, which recently took place in Charlotte, N.C. The President’s Circle Award recognizes exemplary performance made by certified affiliates of the national nonprofit in building and sustaining vibrant communities.
In qualifying for a President’s Circle Award, Keep Cass County Beautiful has met Keep America Beautiful’s standards of merit by conducting an annual Community Appearance Index, calculating the affiliate’s cost/benefit ratio, and administering activities in the areas of litter prevention, recycling and waste reduction, and beautification and community greening. Each year, affiliates grade their communities during a drive-by examination of the same areas at the same time of the year. This provides an indication of the success of each community’s anti-littering education and other anti-littering programs.
