Our Mission

To educate and engage individuals to take greater responsibilities for improving their community environments.

Our Vision

To accomplish a clean, safe and beautiful environment by changing behaviors toward litter prevention, beautification and community improvements and reducing the impact of waste.

Tennessee has an average of 5,100 pieces of litter per mile on urban freeways. Thirty percent is deliberate litter from people in vehicles and 70% is negligent litter from unsecured loads. Last year over 8 million dollars was spent on cleanup in Tennessee. Keep Anderson County Beautiful (KACB) is an affiliate of Keep Tennessee and Keep America Beautiful.

This is a volunteer based educational agency focusing on the Anderson County community: litter prevention; beautification and community improvement; and solid waste management/recycling. Keep Anderson County Beautiful serves Anderson County, TN; including Clinton, Oak Ridge, Norris, Lake City, and Oliver Springs.
