Clayton County Launches Litter Prevention Programs

(Jonesboro, GA)–In an effort to decrease and eliminate litter, the Keep Clayton County Beautiful (KCCB) Office implements three public service programs to help clean Clayton. In addition to services provided by the county, citizens and community organizations are encouraged to volunteer for current KCCB programs:

Adopt a Spot – Adopt an area less than a mile.
Adopt a Road – Adopt a mile or more a road.
Adopt a Bus Stop – Adopt a Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit (MARTA) Bus stop

that does not include a shelter.

“The overall goal of these initiatives is to clean Clayton while boosting community morale,” said Chief Operating Officer Detrick Stanford. “We have heard the concerns of our residents and together we will address the cleanliness of the county. This is undoubtedly an ambitious task, but with the continuous support of our residents, business owners, and visitors, we will keep Clayton County beautiful.”

“By the end of the first quarter in 2021, we hope to have a total of 30 spots, roads, and bus stops adopted,” said KCCB Program Manager Lexi Morgan.
