Keep Lincoln and Lancaster County Beautiful (KLLCB) is seeking volunteers of all ages to participate in Keep America Beautiful's Great American Cleanup. The Great American Cleanup from March through May 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 1,000 local volunteers worked on 105 cleanup projects along roadsides, in parks and other public areas. They collected and properly disposed of about 78,000 pounds of trash and 40,000 pounds of recyclable material.
Individuals and volunteer groups are needed. To volunteer, contact KLLCB at email@example.com or 402-441-8035.
Funds for cleanup projects are available through neighborhood association grants and Community Improvement Grants. For more information on these grant programs, visit lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: kllcb).
