Keep Lakeland Beautiful
In the spring of 2014, “Keep Lakeland Beautiful” began the journey to become an affiliate of the Keep America Beautiful program and only the second in Shelby County.
This program supplements our beautification, recycling, and litter efforts. To be notified of upcoming KLB projects such as litter and beautification efforts throughout the City, please provide your contact info/email by calling 901-867-2717.
The "I Want To Be Recycled” Campaign
This website provides updated educational information about how to recycle often and recycle right.
Recycling is one way to keep litter from ending up roadside or in our streams.
for a PSA message about recycling beyond the kitchen, including personal care products in the bathroom. Here
is another 30-second clip...
A quick way to give a ‘face-lift’ to several areas of the city is to control the litter problem.
Besides being an eyesore, litter hurts our economic development efforts – new businesses will hesitate to locate here if they believe that the litter problem could harm their reputation.
We can all do our part to help by (1) not littering, (2) picking up litter when you see it, and (3) finding ways to get involved in City-wide clean-up efforts such as the City's Adopt-a-Street program
or Semi-Annual Clean Up Day
Others ways to control litter:
Bag your trash before putting into your trash bins
Clean Up Days
Twice a year, the City holds Community Clean Up Days
. They are usually held the first week of November and the first week of May.
