Keep Belmont Beautiful, as an affiliate of Keep American Beautiful, works in partnership with the City of Belmont, North Carolina, educates and involves the community in litter and waste reduction, recycling, beautification, and natural resource conservation.

Community Involvement

Keep Belmont Beautiful has implemented a city-wide litter prevention and recycling encouragement program that is made possible through the efforts of volunteers and local citizens. Keep Belmont Beautiful also awards grants to multiple local area schools annually. These grants are awarded to help fund outdoor campus improvements and improved beautification. Additionally, Keep Belmont Beautiful has also acted as a sponsor for several local civic projects.


City-Wide Cleanup / October Big Sweep

Held in conjunction with the city of Belmont. Volunteers meet in April and October for litter pickup around the city.  Keep Belmont Beautiful implemented a city-wide program of prevention and recycling though example and volunteer actions of local citizens. Our volunteer list has grown to over 100 active participants.


School Beautification Grants & Clean Campus Awards

Keep Belmont Beautiful works with Belmont public schools through outdoor beautification project grants and clean campus programs each spring. Grant applications are reviewed and awarded. A panel of judges comprised of local citizens visits each campus to observe the completed projects and judge general outdoor appearance and cleanliness. Any area school can register with Keep Belmont Beautiful and if guidelines are met, can display the contest sign until the end of the school year.
