>> Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful Community Cleanup Events
Litter is a major source of stormwater pollution in Rockdale County. Therefore, twice a year Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful (KCRB), Rockdale County and the City of Conyers organize community cleanup events in conjunction with the Great American Cleanup in the spring and Rivers Alive in the fall. Both of these events are highly anticipated in our community for those who want to give back through a day of service.
During these cleanup events, volunteers pick up litter along streams in their neighborhoods, parks, around schools, within County/City rights of way, in parking lots and other public areas. With the help of hundreds of volunteers in a typical year, KCRB not only removes a great deal of debris, but the public learns why it is important to prevent litter in the first place.
Please make an effort to stay informed about KCRB’s efforts. Information about our events are often advertised on Rockdale 23, the County’s public access channel, here on this website, in utility bill inserts, through flyers, educational brochures and in local newspapers. These events provide a wonderful opportunity to help keep Rockdale beautiful and contribute to the downstream pollution solution.
Valid participation in a Rockdale County cleanup event can possibly qualify participants for a 5% Watershed Stewardship Stormwater Utility Credit on their stormwater utility bill. Please refer to the Rockdale County Stormwater Utility Credit Manual (click here) for complete details.
