Litter-Free School Zones is a program to encourage students to keep their school grounds litter-free and to raise  public awareness of litter via a Litter-Free School Zone sign to be placed outside the school. This could be an excellent project for your student councils or other youth organizations.

KCCB has a goal to get all of our Cass County Schools to participate.

The Keep America Beautiful Great American CleanupTM is the nation's largest annual cleanup and community improvement event, which runs primarily from March 1 through June 30. The Great American CleanupTM stimulates community pride by involving residents, businesses, and politicians at the state and local level in an effort to improve and beautify their local environment. It encourages volunteerism, personal action, and responsibility, and promotes the missions of the Keep America Beautiful organization: litter prevention, beautification, and minimizing the impact of solid waste. Many schools already complete cleanup events for Earth Day celebrations. This could count as your Great American Cleanup. Let us know how we can support and expand your current activities.
Keep Cass County Beautiful will supply free trash bags and loan banners, gloves, and some pick-up tools while supplies last to those Cass County communities who wish to participate in the Great American Cleanup this Spring. (Click on our "Events" link for use of our supplies.) Activities can include litter cleanups, special recycling events, planting red flowers for a "Grow Big Red" garden, increased recycling collections, tree plantings, clothes collections, etc. Please register any event or activity you wish to do with us at

America Recycles Day is observed annually on November 15.

America Recycles Day (ARD) is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to encouraging Americans to recycle and buy recycled products. Thousands of events are held across the U.S. to raise awareness about the importance of recycling and to encourage Americans to sign personal pledges to recycle and buy products made from recycled materials.

Started by the recycling sector organization National Recycling Coalition in 1997, America Recycles Day has been a program of national nonprofit Keep America Beautiful since 2009. As the managing entity of America Recycles Day, Keep America Beautiful provides promotional and marketing support and resources to a network of local event organizers. It is sponsored by private and public entities and the EPA.
