  • KNB staff and volunteers visit schools with puppet shows and other educational programs, speak at club and organizational meetings, and participate in festivals and expos. 
  • KNB also sponsors cleanups and recycling events throughout the year. 
  • KNB relies on government and grant funding, private contributions, and volunteer participation.

Our Mission

To challenge, motivate, and inspire everyone to take responsibility for a clean and beautiful community

LITTER

Keep Newton Beautiful is working with the Newton County Commissioners and the Solid Waste Management Authority on a plan to hire workers to pick up litter along roadsides in our community. This program is set to begin soon!

If you would like to help by cleaning up roadside litter in your area, please contact us at newtonclean@co.newton.ga.us or 770-784-2015 to request trashbags, gloves, and vests.  

If your family, neighborhood, church, scout, club, fraternity/sorority, school group, etc. would like to Adopt a Mile, please contact us.

Adopt a Mile Application 

Please help us spread the word about the importance of keeping our community clean!

  • Remind your family and friends to always dispose of trash properly.
  • Bag your trash securely so that it doesn't blow in the wind.
  • Cover loads in the back of your pickup truck with a tarp.
  • Report litter and illegal dumping.
  • Keep your home and work place free of litter.


 


Report Littering & Illegal Dumping

Call 911 if you witness anyone littering or dumping.  Many residents are hesitant to call 911, but doing so allows your complaint to be registered in the system and is the recommended and proper way to report.
