Citizens and volunteers are the force helping Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful to keep our community clean and beautiful! We rely on the reports we receive to let us know which areas of our county are looking good and which areas are in need of action. We'd love to hear what you see in your neighborhood and are here to help you recognize the great work of your neighbors or to help you take action to stop littering.
Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful also works to combat litter through their educational programs. If you would like to schedule a visit or a program for your group or classroom, give us a call at (706) 613-3501 x312.
If you see littering or illegal dumping
Litter Hotline - calling our anonymous hotline allows citizens to report the tag number of vehicles that are spotted littering. The litterbug is sent an educational letter informing them that they've been seen littering and outlining the fines for this behavior (although no fine is levied).
Littered areas can be reported to KACCB to be included on our list of areas eligible for an organized cleanup, such as Rivers Alive or a Down & Dirty. Citizens are also encouraged to take an active role in their community and can get help implementing a cleanup.
Citizens can report a litter issue, illegal dumping, or mowing issue on a state route (such as the loop), by contacting the Georgia Department of Transportation. The number for the Athens office is (706) 583-2644.
