Citrus County Cleanup-Greenup

KCCB has a long-standing community cleanup program. Although the program started as a litter pickup effort, beautification projects were soon part of the program. The program, which is patterned after the national program, Keep America Beautiful's Great American Cleanup, which occurs each spring in communities around the country. Citrus County is fortunate to have many months of good weather, allowing this event to operate year-round.

Any community group can organize a cleanup in their neighborhood or in another area of the county. KCCB will provide helpful hints on organizing an event, plus grabbers, bags, gloves and vests for the day of the event. The county will waive tipping fees at the landfill for trash that is generated.

Groups could focus on picking up unwanted bulky items (furniture, tires and/or appliances) in neighborhoods; or work on trimming trees and shrubs and weeding in public spaces. Projects could be to make minor home repairs, do pressure washing, repainting homes, planting of trees, flowers or veggies in a community garden, and of course litter pickup projects. So be creative, have fun and be a part of Citrus County Cleanup-Greenup.
