Well-known for its excellent housing market, an abundance of shopping and dining destinations, top-notch schools, award-winning parks, world-class entertainment, exciting sporting events and charming collection of “Main Street”-centric metropolises, Gwinnett County is truly a wonderful place to be. Add to that a business-friendly environment, quality of living-focused government, outstanding hospital system, exceptional infrastructure, 3.4% unemployment rate and a water production division that supplies the 72 million gallons of clean water our citizens use on average each day. And let’s not forget some of the most neighborly neighbors you’ll ever meet. Gwinnett is a place in which anyone would consider themselves lucky to live, work or play. Even during this month associated with the celebration of good fortune, luck has very little to do with all that makes our community so stellar. In order to maintain our standing, it takes the help of hundreds of the more than 900,000 residents who call Gwinnett “home.” That’s where organizations like Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful come in…
Along with our awesome partners throughout the Gwinnett County Government – from the Departments of Water Resources and Solid Waste Management to the Departments of Transportation and Parks & Recreation (and everyone in between), we are dedicated to not only “Connecting People and Resources for a Sustainable Gwinnett,” we are also focused on educating our neighbors about our impact on the environment we share and motivating them to ACT on behalf of our community on a whole. Just as litter and graffiti can have a negative impact on the health of our environment and economic development within our county, regular cleanup events, proper disposal of waste and a healthy respect for nature can have a lasting and positive impact on this community. While Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful is proud to offer a number of cleanup and recycling events throughout the year, we are continually exploring exciting new ways for Gwinnett County citizens to get outside and get involved.
In addition to popular programs like Adopt-A-Road and Adopt-A-Stream plus well-attended events like Great Gwinnett Wetlands and Earth Day, we are excited to offer a fresh take on Great American Cleanup 2019. Launched by Keep America Beautiful in 1999 and representing the nation’s largest community improvement program, Great American Cleanup will now be represented year-round here in Gwinnett (rather than the three months that it usually covers on the national scale.) We invite you to learn more about this exciting reboot by visiting the Great American Cleanup page at www.gwinnettcb.org.
Here at Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful, we feel lucky to call YOU our neighbor. Let’s do some amazing things together for the health of our environment and the good of our community!
