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 Keep Lakeland Beautiful (KLB) projects such as litter and beautification efforts throughout the City, please provide your contact info/email by calling 901-867-2717.


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

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.
