The 2017 Great American Cleanup

In its 17th year as an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, the Keep Florence Beautiful Board of Directors, along with individuals, churches, nonprofit organizations, political organizations, businesses and schools, join hands in cleaning up Florence and ridding streets and neighborhoods of debris and trash.

The Great American Cleanup (GAC) will be held Saturday, April 1, 2017. Volunteers will be cleaning their designated areas of the community then meeting at Naturally Outdoors Outfitters, 2519 W Palmetto Street, Florence, where teams turn in their clean up reports and enjoy a free lunch provided by Keep Florence Beautiful and its sponsors’.

In addition to the GAC, Keep Florence Beautiful has teamed up with Florence County Disabilities and Special Needs to collect paper at Naturally Outdoors, to be recycled; the paper will be collected onsite then shredded at the AAA certified Palmetto Secure Document Destruction Facility.
