Did you know cigarette butts are the #1 form of litter? You don't have to look too hard to see them all over our parking lots, streets, parks, and public areas. 

Keep Blount Beautiful is a recipient of the 2020 Cigarette Litter Prevention Program Grant. We are working with the City of Maryville, Blount County, and local businesses to place stainless steel cigarette receptacles and signage where they are needed. Our goal is to encourage residents to properly dispose of their cigarette butts, which will be collected and recycled. We also aim to bring awareness to cigarette litter through education. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date!
 
CLPP
Adopt-A-Mile is a community litter pickup program featuring dedicated volunteers that adopt a mile of road in Blount County, City of Alcoa, or City of Maryville. Adopt-A-Mile is great for businesses, community groups, families, and neighborhoods. All supplies will be provided by KBB for each cleanup.

Montvale Friends


Keep Blount Beautiful visited Montvale Elementary Friends for a beautification project! Students learned about reducing, reusing, and recycling, specifically how we can recycle our steel cans- OR reuse it as a planter!
