Programs and Activities:
*International Coastal Cleanup:
-The International Coastal Cleanup is the largest and most successful volunteer event of its kind. Each year, hundreds of thousands of volunteers from around the globe participate, descending on beaches, lakes, and streams all in over 90 nations to remove thousands of tons of trash and debris from our coastlines, rivers and lakes.
*The Great American Cleanup:
-The Great American Cleanup is the nation’s largest, annual community improvement program. It is conducted nationally by Keep America Beautiful and its affiliates from March through May and coordinated locally by Keep Martin Beautiful.
-Keep Martin Beautiful organizes a large community cleanup once a year for a community in need of revitalization, cleanup, and community pride. We partner with Martin County departments, the Sheriff’s Office, Waste Management, and local businesses. Usually the event is concluded by a celebration in a nearby park. With enough sponsorship support, we are able to provide T-shirts, food, and sometimes raffle prizes for community participants.
-Keep Martin Beautiful’s Adopt-A-Road program offers businesses, civic groups, school groups, places of worship, families and individuals the opportunity to adopt a minimum one mile section of county-maintained roadside for the purpose of litter reduction. Teams make a commitment to remove litter along their adopted area at least six times a year. KMB will provide safety vests, trash bags, and pick-up sticks. Teams determine the cleanup schedule based on their availability and preference.
-Adopt-A-Shore is a public/private partnership designed to motivate and educate the community about the problems associated with marine debris and to provide the best volunteer litter removal program for Martin County shorelines.
